We have arrested two men after shots were fired in a street in Liverpool.
On the morning of Wednesday 18th August this year we received a report that shots had been fired on William Henry Street in Islington.
Patrols attended and found evidence consistent with a gun being fired. Nobody has since come forward to report they have been injured.
Yesterday, Thursday 14th October, we executed three warrants.
A 23 year-old man from the Aintree area was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life and obstructing the course of public justice.
A 30 year-old man, also from the Aintree area, was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life, committing an act with intent to pervert the course of justice and possession of a controlled drug Class B.
Both men have been released under investigation pending further enquiries and an investigation remains ongoing.
Detective Inspector John Fitzgerald said: “We are continuing to appeal for anyone with any information about this incident to come forward. There is no place on the streets of Merseyside for guns.
“We will act on all information provided on gun crime to remove weapons and those who use them from the community. Please come forward with what you know, directly or anonymously, and we will do the rest.”
