A 24-year-old man has been arrested over the murder of a man who was shot as he sat in a van at traffic lights on Merseyside.

Paul Pike was in the van in Crosby Road North, Waterloo, on 5 June when a gunman opened fire from an Audi TT.

Merseyside Police said the man from Dingle was in police custody and would be questioned later.

Two men previously arrested on suspicion of murder were released on bail pending further inquiries.

Merseyside Police have previously said that Mr Pike, 23, from Belle Vale, was known to them and they believe it was a targeted shooting. He died at the scene of the shooting.

It is thought the silver Audi TT pulled alongside the red Ford Transit at 2320 BST.

Shots were fired into the van before the car turned and came back towards the van, with the gunman firing more shots.

The Audi - which had been stolen from Hawarden in North Wales - was found burnt out in Fairfield Street, Waterloo, soon after.
