Police investigating the murder of a teenager in Liverpool have arrested a man as part of their investigation into his death.

Kevin Wilson, 17, died in hospital after he was shot in the back in Wavertree on Saturday.

A post-mortem examination confirmed he died from a single gunshot wound.

A 30-year-old man from the Smithdown Road area remains in custody on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice and theft.
