A woman arrested over the fatal shooting of a man in Liverpool has been released on bail.

Mark Hillman, 26, was shot twice in the back and found on a pavement in Lloyd Close, Everton, on Wednesday.

He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A 39-year-old woman from Everton questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder has been released pending further enquiries, Merseyside Police said.

Detectives investigating Mr Hillman's death have searched properties in Anfield, Walton and Bootle and seized more than £9,000.

A woman, 21, has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and money laundering and is being questioned by police.

Officers earlier arrested a 24-year-old man from Walton on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs and possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply. He has been released pending further inquiries.

A 41-year-old man was also arrested in Wavertree on Saturday for breach of a court order and possession of a Class B drug.
