A man was reportedly shot in the face shortly before a little girl was seriously injured after being hit by a car he was travelling in 'while out trick or treating' on Halloween.

Emergency services were called to Sceptre Road in Croxteth, Liverpool, shortly before 8pm last night to reports that shots had been fired and a young girl was hit by a car.

It was reported that a black Volkswagen Golf was shot at while travelling along on the busy street and, as it sped from the scene, it hit a 12-year-old.

Police have launched a massive investigation last night after a gunman opened fire on a car in Croxteth, Liverpool which lost control and crashed into a 12-year-old girl
