Nine-year-old Olivia was shot and killed at her parents’ home about two weeks ago when a man burst into the house fleeing a gunman. The pursuer shot through the half-open door. A bullet injured the mother’s wrist and hit Olivia in the chest, who died as a result. The case sparked national outcry. Two previous suspects have been released.
Police have also complained about a wall of silence in Liverpool following other deadly crimes. Criminal gangs are known to be very active in the city. These include drugs and distribution struggles.
