A man, 35, who had been targeted as he walked in the street with a friend, barged into the semi pursued by the balaclava-clad gunman.

Cheryl desperately tried to barricade the door as bullets ripped into the home in Knotty Ash, Liverpool.

Neighbours said they heard at least four shots. Olivia is believed to have been hit in the chest, Cheryl in the hand and the targeted man was struck twice in the body.

As Olivia lay dying on the floor, callous friends of the injured man then arrived, carried him to their black Audi and took him to hospital — without bothering to check on the family.
