Police in Merseyside have said they are "still as determined as ever" to catch the killer of a man who was shot dead in the street nine years ago.

Care assistant Craig Eaton, 22, was shot twice in Molyneux Road, Kensington, late on 24 February 2004.

Mr Eaton, who worked at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, was on his way to a friend's house.

A £10,000 reward is on offer for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his killer.

Local people tried to give him first aid and called the emergency services but he was pronounced dead on arrival at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

Merseyside Police believe he was killed in a case of mistaken identity.

Det Ch Insp Neil Clark said: "It has been nine years since Craig had his life tragically cut short, and still the family are still finding it difficult to come to terms with their loss.

"He was a young man who was in the prime of his life and he had no link to any criminal groups.

"We believe the suspect is part of the criminal world and there are people out there who know who did this.

"I would urge those people to search their consciences and come forward so we can bring the family the justice they deserve."
