Officers from Liverpool Police Area Command were informed that eight men wearing face coverings forced entry into the premises.

The men were confronted by the 25-year-old man, a resident of the home before he was shot twice.

Petrol was then poured through the home, but not ignited, before the men left the location in two separate vehicles.

During the incident shotgun damage was sustained to a vehicle parked in the driveway of the home.

A crime scene has been established as investigations commence.
