What happened in Liverpool shooting?
Officers were summoned early on Sunday to Leinster Road in Liverpool, where they found the woman injured.
She was brought to the hospital, where doctors declared her dead.
In addition to opening a murder investigation, Merseyside Police have issued an alert about a “vehicle being driven recklessly” down Prescot Road.
“This investigation is in the very early stages,” Det Supt. Mark Baker said. “We understand the public will be very shocked and concerned by what has happened, but we have a number of officers at the scene who are carrying out extensive inquiries to understand what has taken place and take immediate action.”
who was Ashley Dale
Ashley Dale was found injured in her backyard in Old Swan, Liverpool, early on Sunday. She passed away in the hospital a short while later.
According to Merseyside Police, her door had been forced and shots had been fired.
The 28-year-old was “an innocent member of the public” who had been “callously and thoughtlessly shot,” according to Det Ch Supt Mark Kameen.
According to a force spokesman, the council employee was discovered with gunshot wounds in the garden of her home in Leinster Road at around 00:40 BST, and she passed away in the hospital a short while later.
What did Dale’s family say?
According to a statement released by her family, Ms. Dale had “recently been promoted in her position with Knowsley Council” and had been “a hard-working young woman, who had her entire life before of her.”
Her “laugh, grin, and vitality was infectious in any environment,” they continued, adding that she had a degree and “so many plans for her bright future that had just just begun.”
They said, “We can’t comprehend how this could occur to a defenceless woman in her own house.”
Our lives will never be the same again because none of this makes sense.
“A senseless act of violence that has destroyed a family.”
Who is Lewis Dunne?
Lewis Dunne, 16, was shot and killed in Liverpool in 2015 due to a case of mistaken identity. Ms. Dale was Lewis’ half-sister.
Mr. Kameen stated that he wanted the community to “feel an absolute sense of utter disgust, revulsion, and shock” at the “tragic” and “senseless” death while also confirming that no arrests had been made.
He exhorted everyone to “get together” in order to find the culprits.
Ms. Dale was described by him as “an innocent member of the public.”
She was shot callously and carelessly by people who have no regard for anyone in our society or the law while she was in her own home, he claimed.
He added that the force was particularly interested in information concerning a car that had been spotted being driven recklessly on the adjoining Prescot Road. He made an appeal for witnesses.
What happened to Lewis Dunne?
In November 2015, Lewis Dunne, 16, was shot at the back in Eldonian Village, Vauxhall, Liverpool.
Gemma Whitfield, Lewis’s mother, said that his passing had brought about “a tidal wave of trauma” and that “grief is a lonely place, grief induced by murder is much more lonely.”
Each defendant, according to Judge Mr. Justice Turner, “lied repeatedly about what actually transpired,” and he had “no doubt” that “whoever pulled the trigger intended to murder,” he added.
He told the defendants, “You made great attempts to dodge culpability, and Lewis’s death was little more than collateral damage.”

Ashley Dale’s death is an absolute horror moment for this city. A young woman, with no links to criminal activity, murdered in her own home. Decent people will not stand for this I am sure. Anyone who knows anything has to come forward
