15-year-old survives multiple shooting in Liverpool


A 15-year-old girl survived after being shot in a hail of bullets at a bus stop in Liverpool.

The teenager is in a severe but steady-state in the hospital after she became the victim of a “cowardly” drive-by shooting in the Toxteth area of the city on Tuesday, 2 March, detectives said.


The girl had finished her day at school and is believed to have been waiting at a bus stop at Upper Warwick Street when she was shot in the upper body shortly after 5 pm.

A 21-year-old man has been captured on doubt of attempted killing and custody of a firearm with the intention to endanger life. The second man in his 60s has been arrested for helping a criminal.

On Wednesday, 2 March, detectives asked drivers in the area to come forward with any dashcam footage potentially showing men in shady clothes riding electric bikes. The criminals are said to have been wearing balaclavas or masks.

Detective Chief Superintendent Mark Kameen said the teenager suffered a gunshot that injured her upper body and was taken hurriedly to a nearby hospital in a critical condition. He further said it was an “absolute miracle and a credit to the NHS” that she survived.

In a press conference held at Merseyside police headquarters, detectives said that they assume that there was not just one attacker involved in this act and that maybe four electric bikes have been used at a time.

The assaulters, who fired multiple shots, rode towards North Hill Street and the Princes Road area.


After some time, police were called to the Toxteth shooting, where a 21-year-old man came to the hospital with a gunshot injury to his hand.

Detectives said they thought the two happenings were connected but kept an open mind.

Police were making house-to-house investigations, and CCTV was also being checked.
