POLICE blocked off a road in Bootle last week after reports that a house had been shot at.

A section of Bedford Road was taped off by officers on Tuesday, August 4 at around 6.30pm with damage caused to the front window of a property.

The scene was analysed by a forensic examination team, house-to-house enquiries were carried out and patrols have been stepped up in the area. 

No one was reported injured and an investigation into the full circumstances of the incident is ongoing. 

A 46-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and criminal damage. Officers arrested the man after executing a warrant in the local area shortly after 6am.

An investigation into the shooting remains on-going and witnesses are still being encouraged to come forward.

Anyone with information is urged to call MSOC officers on 0800 230 0600 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
