Police in Merseyside are appealing for information one week after the murder of Aaron Lewis in Wavertree.

The 26-year-old was shot outside Anna Jungs chip shop on Grosvenor Road on Wednesday evening, February 1.

He was taken to Aintree Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time of the shooting to come forward.

Forensic tests are continuing to find out if there are any links between the shooting and the two weapons found close to the scene.

Aaron’s family are understandably devastated by their loss and need answers to why this has happened and who is responsible.

An investigation is ongoing and officers have been carrying out house to house and CCTV enquiries in the local area. We will also be speaking to people in the Wavertree today who may have been in the area last week and may have information that could assist with this investigation.

I would like to take this opportunity to reinforce the message that there is no place in Merseyside for firearms and Merseyside Police is committed to fighting gun crime, finding the people responsible for bringing fear to our communities, and bringing them to justice.

We also need the public’s help. We know incidents of this nature rightly shock and anger the law-abiding members of our communities and we want them to come forward with information which can help us and help us to keep our streets safe.
