The family of a 20-year-old man who was shot and killed in Liverpool have appealed for information on the fourth anniversary of his death.

Eddie Pybis was shot on 3 January 2011 when he was a passenger in a silver Volvo being driven along Utting Avenue in Anfield and died six days later.

Eight men have been arrested in connection with his death but nobody has been charged.

His sister Kirsty said the family "continue to grieve".

She said their mother died two years ago, adding: "As a family, we would like both my brother and mother to be able to rest in peace, by finally bringing his killer or killers to justice."

'Loyalties changed'

Police want to speak to anyone with information about a black BMW seven series - registration DX57 UHU - which was seen driving erratically around Anfield shortly before the incident.

It was found burned out in Bellefield Avenue, West Derby, just hours after the shooting.

The car had been stolen from Knutsford in December 2010.

Officers also want to speak to two men who travelling in a dark saloon car in Larkhill Close on the afternoon of 3 January 2011.

Det Ch Insp Neil Clark said: "I am sure that some allegiances or loyalties will have changed since 2011 and I would appeal to those who know what happened to examine their consciences and do the right thing by Eddie and his family and come forward."
