A man questioned over the death of a man shot at traffic lights on Merseyside has been released on bail.

Paul Pike was in a red van in Crosby Road North, Waterloo, on 5 June when a gunman opened fire from an Audi TT.

The 23-year-old, from Belle Vale, was pronounced dead at the scene after what police said was a targeted attack.

Merseyside Police arrested a 24-year-old man from Netherley on suspicion of murder but he has since been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Detectives have previously said that Mr Pike was known to them.

It is thought the silver Audi TT pulled alongside the red Ford Transit at 2320 BST.

Shots were fired into the van before the car turned and came back towards the Transit, firing more shots.

The Audi - which had been stolen from Hawarden in North Wales - was found burnt out in Fairfield Street, Waterloo, soon after.
