The woman died in Liverpool because a gunshot was not intended, said police. On Sunday morning, Ashley Dale was found unconscious and wounded in her back garden in Black swan, Liverpool.
Ashley Dale was taken to the hospital soon after the incident. Merseyside Police said that her house door was forcefully opened, and several shots were fired.
Det Ch Supt Mark Kameen said that Twenty-eight-year-old Ashley Dale was an innocent girl and a wise societal member. She had died in place of someone else. This isn’t comforting.
A force spokesman said the council worker Ashley Dale was found Unconscious due to severe gunshot wounds in the garden of her house in Leinster Road at about 00:40 BST and died in hospital a short time later.
In a statement, a family member of dead twenty-eight-year-old Ashley Dale confirmed that she was a very hard-working woman who had her entire life ahead of her and had “just been promoted at her job with Knowsley Council.”
In addition, they said that she had so many plans for her bright future, which were only just begun, adding that her “laugh, smile and energy was infectious in any room.” This is unbelievable that this could happen to an innocent woman in her own place.
This is such a senseless crime which has shattered our whole family into pieces.
Det Ch Supt Mark Kameen confirmed that no arrests had been made and said he wanted the community to have a sense of utter disgust, hatred and shock at the tragic and senseless death.
Det Ch Kameen requested people to come together and help the police to investigate and arrest the guilty. He said that Dale was an innocent member of society who was thoughtlessly shot dead at her own house by the people who have no regard for our law and community.
