Smithdown Road in shock after teenager shot in the back

Workers and residents on Smithdown Road spoke of their shock at the death of a teenager found shot on a nearby street.
The young man, said to be in his late teens, was found in the road on the corner of Holmes Street and Smithdown Road on Saturday night after being shot in the back.
A staff member in the Booze Bros shop up Smithdown Road from the scene described the immediate aftermath of the shooting.
The man, who did not want to be named, said: “I was putting the bins out the back, and I heard police cars going past.
“There were four or five cars at first. I ran down the street and saw lots of armed response vehicles. There were ambulances as well.
“There were people standing around, and the police told us to move away.
Emergency services arrived at around 8.30pm, and police tried to revive the victim until paramedics arrived. He was taken to the Royal hospital but died a short while later.
The scene is directly outside the new site of Archbishop Blanch high school, which is currently being built.
Jamelah Hussain, 40, who was walking down Wendell Street and lives south of the scene near Princes Park, said: “It’s awful, this kind of thing happening right in front of the school and right on our front doorstep.”
She was trying to get to the Asda supermarket but had been redirected by police to walk south of Toxteth Park cemetery.
Forensic teams were on site on Sunday morning, and an officer at the scene said he expected the road to be closed into the evening.
John Tetteh, 59, who lives in Whittier Street, said he thought the incident was unusual because of recent improvements due to regeneration.
He added: “Things have started improving because there’s been regeneration. They have been demolishing the old houses and putting up new houses.
“There used to be lots of crime, shootings and stabbings, especially around the Women’s Hospital, and things are getting better.


Lucas Czajkowski, 31, a chef who lives on Wendell Street, said he had got home to be greeted by the police cordon.
He said: “I finished work around 12 and came home. I saw the police and lots of people standing around, and I thought someone’s been shot, or stabbed.”
The manager of the Betfred store on Smithdown Road, who did not want to give her name, said that she was concerned the victim might be one of her customers.
She added: “The staff were just saying last night that someone’s been shot.
“I’m worried it might be one of the customers, but nobody’s said anything yet. We get a lot of young people in here and we just hope it’s not someone we know.”
Last night Detective Chief Superintendent Karen Cummings said: “The investigation is in its early stages and extensive enquiries are being carried out to establish any potential motive and to identify those responsible.
“I would urge anyone who saw anything, or who has any information, which could help us with our enquiries to contact us urgently. You may not think that the information you have is significant but it could help us with our enquiries in relation to either of these incidents.”
The ECHO was today awaiting a further update from police on their progress with the investigation.
