A fifth person has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a Merseyside man on his driveway.

Jason Osu, 31, was shot five times on 19 November, at the Beauclair Drive and Woolton Road junction in Wavertree. He died in hospital a week later.

The 21-year-old man arrested has been detained on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Two men, aged 22 and 32, and two women, aged 24 and 49, who were previously arrested are on police bail.

Police said the latest suspect had also been bailed pending further inquiries.

Mr Osu was a currency trader and held a pilot's licence.

Police described the shooting as a targeted attack and said it was in a "low crime, suburban area of Liverpool".
