Mobile police station opens.

AS PRENTON Green remained cordoned off by the police last night, a mobile police station had opened to the public on Eastern Avenue.

Merseyside Police's Liverpool Area Commander Mark Wiggins said detectives believe people in the community know who is responsible and urged them to come forward. He added: "We can't police areas without the support from the community and we need them to help us help them. This was a reckless act and these people need to be brought to justice."

Meanwhile, residents were still reeling from the shock of the shootings, which happened at 8.15pm on Wednesday.

A woman living on Millwood Road said: "I was out at the time, but my son was in the house and he heard some banging and then a baby crying."

Another Millwood Road resident said: "I hadn't heard gunshots but I heard what sounded like car tyres screeching as it went around a corner really fast.

"I haven't lived around here long, I only moved in in April so it's the first time anything like this has happened with me living here.

"I read about it in the news and it was a real shock. I don't know what to think really."
