The investigation into the attack continued this morning, with police maintaining a presence at the scene.

The shooting was the latest example of gun thugs recklessly flouting restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus to put lives at risk.

Two homes and a car were damaged in shootings on the Beechwood estate, Wirral, on Good Friday, while men have been murdered in shootings in Southport and Litherland.

Two males were also shot during an incident in Toxteth last weekend.
