A man has been shot in the head and another man has been injured in Southport after a gunman opened fire outside a shopping centre.
According to a report in the Daily Star, people fled to safety as the man in his 20’s suffered a gunshot wound to the head that isn’t believed to be life threatening.
Armed police swooped on the scene after gunshots were heard in the busy shopping area near stores such as Primark, Poundland and Coral.
Cops discovered two men had been injured during the incident – a bus driver and a man in his 20s who had been shot in the head.
Witnesses described hearing a gunshot and running for cover as people were kept inside shops for safety.
Both men have been taken to hospital – and the man with the head wound is described as having “non life-threatening” injuries.
Cops are now trying to establish what exactly happened and find out who was the shooter after the 12.30pm incident.
A witness told the Liverpool Echo: “I walked out of Primark and the second I stepped outside I heard it, it was outside Thorntons.
“Scary stuff, I just rushed the kids away and back home. Feel sick. The guy who got shot was sitting up and conscious so fingers crossed he’s okay.”

Theresa May mocked Jeremy Corbyn today during Prime Minister’s questions over his past comments that he would be Prime Minister by Christmas.
Mrs May said to the house: “The right honourable gentlemen is wrong because NHS funding has gone up, he’s wrong because social care funding has gone up.”

“Not that long ago he said we wouldn’t deliver on phase 1 of the Brexit negotiations, well he was wrong, we’ve made sufficient progress and we’re moving onto phase 2 of the Brexit negoatations.
Well said Mrs May!
It’s always great to see Mr Corbyn proved wrong.
Maybe he was referring to Christmas 2018…who knows!
Theresa May DEMANDS SNP chief to ‘Google it’ during fiery Brexit exchange
Theresa May hit back at Scottish National Party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford telling him to ‘google it’.
Discussing this in the Commons, Mr Blackford said: “For the absence of any doubt can the Prime Minister tell the House today that in no circumstance will we be returning to a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.
“Let’s make that commitment tin this House today.”
The Prime Minister hit back, Mrs May blast: “He asked me to confirm in this house that there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
“I have to say to him this is not the first time I have made this statement in this House. He can Google it and find from Hansard how many times I have said it.
“Indeed, if he listened to my statement and looked at my statement I said the joint report reaffirms our guarantee that there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.”
“Northern Ireland is in a different position from Scotland. It is the only part of the United Kingdom which has a land border with a country that will remain in the European Union.
“And it is in fact already the case that there are a number of unique, specific solutions that pertain to the island of Ireland – the common electricity market, for example.”
