Man arrested over two shootings in Sefton a year apart

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with two shootings in Merseyside more than a year apart, police have said.

The 24-year-old, from Bootle, was held on Sunday after a 23-year-old man was shot in the arm in Crosby on 25 July.

He is also being questioned over a shooting in Monfa Road, Bootle, on 11 May last year.

It left a 29-year-old man critically injured after being shot several times in a "brazen targeted attack".
