Two arrested over armed police stand-off

Two men have been arrested after a three-hour stand-off with armed police following a Liverpool shooting incident.

Merseyside Police were called to Breck Road, in the Anfield area of Liverpool on Monday night, when shots were fired at the offices of a car dealership.

Nobody was injured, but a window was broken

Witnesses said they saw a number of men leave the scene in a green VW Passat which later appeared outside a block of flats elsewhere in Breck Road.

Armed response teams surrounded the flats and evacuated residents as a containment operation took place.

The incident was brought to a peaceful end just before 11.30pm when two men left the building and were arrested by waiting officers.

The pair were taken into custody for questioning.
