A nine-year-old child, Olivia Pratt-Korbel, was fatally shot when a man being chased by a gunman forced his way into her Liverpool home.

Cheryl Korbel opened her front door after she heard a commotion outside to see what was going on. In the aftermath of the situation, her nine years old daughter was shot in the chest as Cheryl struggled with the man at the door.

The gunman chasing the other man fired indiscriminately, hitting Olivia, her mum in hand, and the man in the body. Merseyside Police reported the family had no connection with the two-man who forced their way into the house.

Chief Constable Serena Kennedy requested for anyone with information to come forward. At the press conference, she added now was not the time to remain silent.

The gunman saw what was happening and followed his prey into the house as Cheryl, 46, tried to close the door and keep him out. Instead, the gunman fired a shot that police believe hit Korbel, injuring her wrist, before fatally wounding her nine-year-old daughter Olivia, who stood behind her mother at the foot of the stairs.

Despite the horror, the assailant continued to make his way into the house, firing two consecutive shots into the upper body of a 35-year-old man.
The attacker ran away on foot, and shortly after, a black Audi car pulled up outside the house and took the now wounded 35-year-old man to the hospital.

When police arrived, looking at the situation of Olivia, they took the girl to the nearby Alder Hey children's hospital. Unfortunately, despite the best effort of the medical team, Olivia died.
