Police stormed a pub in Liverpool last night after reports of gunfire.
At around 6.45pm three men reportedly ran into the Arrowe Parke pub shouting that they had been shot at.
There are no reports of injuries, but the incident was described as a “targeted assault”.
Customers told the Liverpool Echo they were told to leave the pub last night.
Two lines of police were deployed near the scene of the crime in Woodchurch last night and an investigation is ongoing.
Officials said they are still in the area conducting forensic, video and witness interviews and speaking to locals.
Merseyside Police Detective Inspector Darren Hankin said: “We are at a very early stage of an investigation and will remain in the area to reassure the community and gather information.
“This initially appears to have been a targeted attack, but we remain open-minded to the circumstances.
