Police trace stolen BMW in shooting murder
Police have released pictures of a stolen car they believe that was used in a drive by shooting which killed a 20 year old man in broad daylight.
20 year old Eddie Pybis from Norris Green, was in a car when he was shot once in the arm and chest on Utting Avenue, Anfield at around 3.30pm on Monday, January 3.
He died in hospital a week later.
Detectives believe the shots came from within a black BMW 740i seven series that was stolen in a burglary in Cheshire.
The BMW, which has a registration plate of DX57 UHU, was found burned out in Bellefield Avenue, West Derby on the evening on January 3, hours after the shooting.
The investigation team are trying to trace the movements of the BMW from when it was stolen in Cheshire on Decemeber 2, to when it was discovered burned out.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Clark, senior investigating officer, said:
"This black BMW was seen on Utting Avenue at around 3.30pm driving alongside the silver Volvo Eddie Pybis was travelling in when he was shot.
"It is believed that the BMW may have been in the area prior to the shooting and because it is quite a distinctive vehicle we hope that someone may remember seeing it.
"We are also keen to establish where the BMW was stored and any other sightings of the car between the time it was stolen and the fatal shooting as well as who had access to the vehicle.
"We ask anyone with any information about this car and its movements, no matter how small, to call us as it could be the vital piece in the picture that we need.
"A family is still grieving the loss of their son, brother and uncle and we appeal to anyone who knows anything about this incident to let us know so we can take action against the offenders and bring Eddie's family some peace."
Anyone with any information is asked to call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 8676, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
