United Kingdom: After the murder of a 9-year-old girl, a first suspect was arrested

He is the first suspect arrested in this case, which shocked the Channel. A 36-year-old man, suspected of the murder of a little girl who was shot in her home in Liverpool (northern England), was arrested in England on Friday morning. He was immediately taken into custody.

“We have arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of murdering Olivia Pratt-Korbel. The man from the Huyton area has also been arrested on two counts of attempted murder,” said local police. This arrest came “after an operation involving armed officers”, which took place on Thursday in the Liverpool area.

On Monday night, the mother of 9-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel opened the door to her house after hearing a noise in the street. A man then rushed in, followed by another who fired indiscriminately, wounding the 46-year-old mother in the hand and killing the little girl standing behind her. This murder came 15 years after the killing of an 11-year-old boy who was shot and killed a few miles away as he was walking home from playing soccer.

“A unique, talkative and curious little girl”

The 35-year-old man who was shot in the attack and has since been hospitalized has been arrested for violating the conditions of his release from prison. He had been transported to the hospital by his friends who had left the little girl behind.

Olivia’s family paid tribute to her on Thursday, describing her as “a unique, talkative and curious little girl.” She urged anyone with information about the murder to “speak up” to “find out who took our baby from us.”
