A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder over the shooting of an 18-year-old in what police said was a "cold-blooded, targeted attack".

Yusuf Sonko was found on Tagus Street, Toxteth in Liverpool at about 20:30 BST on Friday and later pronounced dead.

The 21-year-old local man is the second person held on suspicion of murder over Mr Sonko's death. A boy aged 17 who was arrested on Monday remains in custody.

A 16-year-old boy has also been arrested on suspicion of wounding.

Police are asking anyone who was driving in the Lodge Lane area at about 20:30 on 2 June, who may have dashcam footage, to contact them.

The 21-year-old man from the L8 area was later released on conditional bail pending further enquiries to a date later in June, said police.
