A nine-year-old girl has been brutally shot in her chest in Liverpool. Merseyside Police has started an investigation after visiting the crime scene at Kingsheath Avenue, Knotty Ash, at 10 pm on Monday.
According to the force, an unknown male and female had fired guns inside the house at Kingsheath Avenue and injured the family, leading to the nine-year-old girl’s death.
The little girl suffered from a gunshot injury in her chest. She was taken to the hospital soon after the incident but was later declared dead by the doctor.
In addition, the force said that the man suffered from a gunshot injury on his body, whereas the woman was wounded to her hand by a gunshot.
For treatment of severe injuries by gunshot, they were taken to the nearby hospital. Assistant Chief Constable Jenny Sims said that they are genuinely shocked due to this incident in which an innocent nine-year-old was shot, and sadly she could not survive due to the severe injury in her chest.
In addition, Assistant Chief Constable Jenny Sims said that my thought goes to the little girl’s family and anyone affected due to this brutal incident in Liverpool.
“This faint-hearted individual does not deserve to be walking the streets, and I urge those who know anything to speak to us and tell us what they know so that we can put the person responsible behind bars where they belong says Assistant Chief Constable Jenny Sims.
Assistant Chief Constable Jenny Sims stated that they are carrying out several lines of enquiry as a matter of urgency and would ask for the dashcam, CCTV or mobile phone footage from anyone who lives, works or was visiting the area of Kingsheath Avenue last night.”
