Warning of more shootings to come.

A SENIOR underworld figure last night warned the shooting of a six-year- old girl could be the catalyst for a series of tit-for-tat attacks.

The man, who does not wish to be identified, said the gunman had broken gangland rules.

He said: ``Whether this is a feud or not doesn't really matter.

``The fact is that by shooting a child the gunman has pretty much said `anythinggoes'.It used to be that women did not get involved,but things have changed over the years and some women have become targets.

``But children should not be harmed in any circumstances,and whoever shot the little girl has broken one of the last taboos.

``It could be that whoever did it was brought in from outside the city,and it would be just as well for him if he gets out of here and never comes back.

``But if he was put up to do the job for someone from Liverpool then you could find that it sparks a load more shootings.

``I know the police are going to be calling for members of the so-called underworld to come forward with information,but that is not likely to happen.

``What is much more likely is that it will be settled on the streets because that is the way it goes.

``It was the same after David Ungi was killed, you just sensed that was going to be the straw that broke the camel's back, and it was.

``After that every little argument was settled with a shooting,and we could be set for more of the same.''
