Police renew witness appeal a year on from murder of Liverpool man

Detectives are appealing for information on the first anniversary of the murder of a man in Wavertree, Liverpool.

25-year-old Leroy Ottey was shot on Alderson Road in Wavertree on the night of Oct 17, 2018.

Mr Ottey, known locally as Mari, had just got out of a taxi at the time. He was taken to hospital but died in the early hours of the following day.

Six men aged between 23-31 have so far been arrested on suspicion of murder and all remain under investigation.

The investigation continues to progress but detectives and Leroy’s family are taking the opportunity of his anniversary to re-appeal to the community for any information which can help them to bring those responsible to justice.
