A man was shot after an argument broke out in the street outside a house in Liverpool.

The man, 25, sustained an elbow injury in the incident, in Garston on Monday, when shots were fired at the house.

Two children and three other adults, who were inside the McBride Street house when the gun was fired at about 18:50 BST, were unhurt.

A black car was seen leaving the scene and a man, 27, was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Police cordon

He was detained in Toxteth and is due to be questioned later.

Merseyside Police believe a row broke out between the injured man and three others, before the shots were fired.

There was some damage to the front windows of the house and the man was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries.

The scene was cordoned off while investigators were at the scene.

Police said a black Vauxhall Vectra was found in Kelvin Grove in Toxteth a short time later.

Officers are appealing to anyone who may have seen a black car being driven erratically around McBride Street at the time of the shooting, or anyone who saw anything suspicious, to contact them.
