Detectives investigating a shooting in Liverpool which left a man critically injured have recovered a stolen car.

The victim was pulling into the drive of his house on the corner of Woolton Road and Beauclair Drive, Wavertree, on Monday evening when he was shot several times by two masked men.

A Citroen C4 was later found on fire nearby and police have appealed for information about the vehicle.

Police said the car was stolen a month ago and had false number plates.

Det Ch Supt Paul Richardson said: "Detectives are currently trying to establish if the car is connected to the incident and I would appeal to anyone who may have information about where this car has been kept for the last month to come forward."

The vehicle was found in Waldgrave Road, Wavertree.

Police said the offenders left the scene of the shooting, at the junction between Woolton Road and Beauclair Drive, in a dark coloured hatchback car.

The area remains sealed off and house-to-house inquiries are under way.

Police said the attack is thought to have been targeted and described the area as a quiet suburban part of Liverpool, which has low levels of crime.

The victim remains in hospital.
