Police investigating the murder of a man who was shot in Liverpool are trying to trace a car which they believe was used by his killer.

Eddie Pybis was in a silver Volvo on Utting Avenue in Anfield on 3 January when he was shot in the chest and arm.

The 20-year-old, of Norris Green, was taken to hospital but died from his injuries on 9 January.

Detectives believe the shots came from within a black BMW 740i seven series which had been stolen in a burglary.

They have released a photograph of the car, which was taken from Cheshire on 2 December last year.

The BMW, which has a registration plate of DX57 UHU, was found burned out in Bellefield Avenue, West Derby, hours after the shooting.

Police are trying to trace the movements of the car from when it was stolen to when it was found.

Det Ch Insp Neil Clark, senior investigating officer, said: "It is believed that the BMW may have been in the area prior to the shooting and because it is quite a distinctive vehicle we hope that someone may remember seeing it.

"We are also keen to establish where the BMW was stored and any other sightings of the car between the time it was stolen and the fatal shooting as well as who had access to the vehicle.

"We ask anyone with any information about this car and its movements, no matter how small, to call us as it could be the vital piece in the picture that we need."
