Christmas Eve shooting at UK pub leaves 1 dead, 3 wounded
Police say a Christmas Eve shooting at a pub in northwest England killed a young woman and wounded three men.
The Merseyside Police force said it was investigating the 11:50 p.m.
Saturday shooting at the Lighthouse pub in the town of Wallasey as a murder case.
Police have not detained any suspects but think the gunman drove away in a dark-colored vehicle.
A senior police official said Sunday, “We understand that this is a truly shocking and devastating incident that has happened just before Christmas Day in a busy venue full of young people.”
Gun violence is comparatively rare in Britain, where even most police officers do not carry guns.
