Nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel who was fatally shot by a gunman on Monday night

She is not believed to have been the intended target, with the attacker chasing a 35-year-old man to the house and firing with “complete disregard” for its inhabitants.

Despite being rushed to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital by police, Olivia died of her injuries in what officers called a “shocking and appalling” crime.

Police have said they have been given the same name by two different sources and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward and have urged the gunman to give himself up.

The gunman was wearing a black padded jacket, a black balaclava with a peak, dark trousers and black gloves, and had fired shots at two men walking along Kingsheath Avenue, causing them to flee.
