Man with toddler chased and shot in Liverpool
A man is in a "serious but stable" condition in hospital after being shot as he left his Liverpool home with his partner and 18-month-old child.
Merseyside Police said the 30-year-old was chased by a gunman along Maberley View, Wavertree, before being shot in the back at about 20:00 BST on Tuesday.
Detectives are investigating a possible link with a burnt-out Nissan Qashqai discovered in nearby Old Mill Lane.
Supt Mark Wiggins said: "We believe this incident was a targeted attack."
Appealing for witnesses to come forward, he added: "Merseyside Police deals robustly with any incidents of gun crime and we will relentlessly pursue those who use guns on our streets."
