Police activity following shootings in Merseyside
Following three shootings in Merseyside in the last week, two injury discharges and one damage only discharge, disruption and reassurance work continues across the county this weekend.
Increased resources have already been deployed across Sefton, Liverpool and Wirral including officers from Matrix, local policing and response staff to target those involved in serious and organised crime in our communities.
Detective Superintendent Mark Kameen said: “Gun crime is simply unacceptable and will not be tolerated under any circumstances. As a force we are committed to making Merseyside a safer place to live and will continue to disrupt criminal activity while offering reassurance to the community.
“We know there is a lot more to do and we will continue to work with our partner agencies to persistently pursue those individuals that make life a misery for the rest of the law-abiding community.
“I would like to thank the members of the public that have come forward with information to assist our on-going enquiries and would urge them to continue to do so. We will continue to take action whenever the community tells us there are problems.
“Information from the public is vital in building evidence to make arrests and remove guns from circulation and by standing together with the community, we can get these cowardly individuals off our streets.”
Anyone with information on issues affecting your community is asked to speak to local officers, contact our social media desk @MerPolCC, call 101 or you can call the independent charity @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111.
