Police searching for alleged offenders on electric bikes after fatal stabbing

Detectives are searching for two people on electric bicycles as part of a murder investigation into the fatal stabbing of a young man in Liverpool.

Erseyside Police said officers were called to Lavrock Bank in downtown Toxteth at 11.40pm where they found a seriously injured man, believed to be in his early 20s, with a shot to the chest.

CPR was administered at the scene until an ambulance arrived and took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police believe two perpetrators, both dressed in dark clothing, were seen riding away from the scene on electric bicycles.

An investigation is ongoing and crime scene investigators are conducting forensic investigations, the force said in a statement.

Officers are also conducting house-to-house inquiries and will examine security footage to identify perpetrators and determine circumstances.

An autopsy will be carried out by the Ministry of the Interior to determine the cause of death.

I understand this will be shocking to the local community but I would like to assure them that we have increased patrols in the area and are conducting a number of investigationsCI Colonel Rooney

Chief Inspector Col Rooney said: “The investigation is in its infancy and officers are working hard to determine the circumstances of the shooting and identify those responsible.

“I understand this will be shocking to the local community but I would like to reassure them that we have increased patrols in the area and are conducting a number of investigations.

“If anyone has information that would help us with our investigation, or has seen or heard anything suspicious before or after the incident, I would encourage them to come forward and tell us what they know.

“I would also ask if anyone has CCTV or ringing the doorbell, footage that might help us get in touch urgently.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DM @MerPolCC or @CrimestoppersUK or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting log 1259 of 16th August.
