Moment shots are heard from car during fatal Merseyside pub shooting

A 26-year-old woman died in the shooting on Christmas Eve

A customer at the pub where a woman was shot dead on Christmas Eve recorded the moment gunshots rang out across the street.

Elle Edwards was out celebrating with her sister and friends at the Lighthouse Inn in Wallasey Village in the Wirral when the shooter opened fire in the crowd.

One customer had left the pub shortly before the shooting took place and appeared to have been recording a video in her car when the sound of bullets being fired rang out. Hear the events unfold below:

Edwards, 26, is not believed to have been the target of the attack but died after she was shot in the head on 24 December.

Today (27 December), Merseyside Police confirmed they have arrested two people in relation to the attack.

Detective Superintendent Sue Coombs commented: "We have made two arrests in connection with this cold-blooded shooting.

"Elle's family are still having to come to terms with her tragic loss, and our specially trained family liaison officers are supporting them. We will not rest until we bring those responsible to justice and I would appeal to anyone who has information to contact us."

The two people in police custody include a 30-year-old man from Tranmere who has been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder, and a 19-year-old woman from Rock Ferry for suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

Police are urging people who were in the pub at the time of the incident, or anyone who has mobile or CCTV footage of the shooting, to contact Merseyside Police as the information may prove vital to the investigation.

Superintendent Coombs added: "We are also appealing to motorists and residents in the area, who may have captured anything on dashcam or CCTV to contact us and every bit of evidence is crucial to the investigation."

Other victims of the attack include a 28-year-old man who remains in a serious condition in hospital and three people who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including a 22-year-old man who suffered leg injuries, a man, 24, who received a hand injury, and a man, 33, who suffered an injury to his wrist.

Edwards was taken to Arrowe Park Hospital following the shooting, but died of her injuries.

Local resident Molly Mason, who lives near to the pub, told Sky News there was 'a lot of shock' after the shooting took place and said she knew it was bad because there was 'no drama', screaming or crying.

"It was a state of shock," she said.
