Detectives have said they remain determined to find the killer of a man shot dead in Liverpool two years ago.

Daniel Keatinge, 25, was shot four times on Formosa Road, Fazakerley, on 30 January 2009. He died in hospital.

Police said Keatinge, who had served a prison sentence for wounding two clubbers in a shooting, had been targeted but the motive was unclear.

A £10,000 reward is on offer for anyone with information leading to the prosecution of the gunman.

He was last seen running away in the direction of Eagle Dene on a footpath leading off Formosa Road.

The man is described as white, aged between 16 and 20, and was wearing dark clothing and a black Lowe Alpine hat.

Det Ch Insp Dave Brunskill, from the Force Major Incident Team, said: "I would urge anyone who may have information regarding Daniel Keatinge's murder to come forward.

"We are particularly interesting in speaking to anyone who saw a silver car in the area around the time of the murder to come forward.

"If you were driving a silver car in the area around that time we would also ask you to come forward so that we can eliminate you from our inquiries.

"We are determined to find the person responsible for the murder of Daniel Keatinge."

Keatinge was known to police because of the incident in 2003 in which he shot at a nightclub doorman but struck the clubbers. Neither was seriously hurt.

He admitted wounding, possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and dangerous driving at Liverpool Crown Court.
