Detectives are appealing for witnesses following reports of an altercation at the junction of Milton Avenue and Greystone Road in Huyton, last night, Sunday 13th May.

Officers were called at 10.10pm to reports that two males on a red and white scrambler bike had been involved in an argument with the occupants of a small, dark coloured car.

It is believed that one of the males on the bike then approached the car with what is believed to be a firearm and fired one shot towards the vehicle. Both vehicles then left the scene.

At this stage nobody has presented at hospital with any injuries consistent with a firearm and no damage to cars or buildings has been found or reported.

A search of the area is ongoing and house-to-house and CCTV enquiries are ongoing in the local area.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Sephton said: “At this stage the investigation is in its very early stages and we are trying to establish what has taken place.

“Nobody has presented at hospital with injuries consistent with being shot and nothing was found during an initial search of the area last night. That search will continue today.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Milton Avenue at around 10pm last night, saw either vehicle travelling around the Huyton area, or has any information which could assist with the investigation to get in touch.”
