Liverpool (AP) – About two weeks after the killing of a nine-year-old girl in Liverpool, the police found two suspects. A 34-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of murder and attempted murder, Merseyside Police said. Investigators also arrested a 41-year-old from Knowsley, near Liverpool, who is said to have helped the attacker.
Nine-year-old Olivia was shot dead in her parents’ home about two weeks ago when a man rushed into the house fleeing a gunman. The pursuer fired 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 had sparked national outrage. Two previous suspects have been released.
Police have also lamented a wall of silence in Liverpool following other deadly crimes. It is known that criminal gangs are very active in the city. Among other things, it is about drugs and distribution struggles.
