CCTV capturing the moment a gunman fled the scene after the fatal shooting of Olivia Pratt-Korbel in her home has been released by detectives.

Merseyside Police said they know the man had been armed with two guns.

The nine-year-old was killed as her mother Cheryl Korbel tried to stop the gunman from entering their home in Dovecot, Liverpool, on 22 August.

Ms Korbel was also injured, as was convicted drug dealer Joseph Nee, who was the intended target of the attack.

Det Ch Supt Mark Kameen said the footage had been released because people may recognise what he was wearing.

“This footage shows the gunman running along Finch Lane away from Kingsheath Avenue,” he added.

“You then see him turn right into Berryford Road and go out of sight. We know he is climbing into and through people’s gardens to avoid being seen.”
