Man arrested over Christmas Eve killing of Elle Edwards released on bail


The third person arrested in connection with the death of Elle Edwards, who was shot dead at a pub in Merseyside on Christmas Eve, has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

The 31-year-old man from Tranmere had been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

Two other people who had been arrested in connection with the shooting were earlier released from custody.

Elle Edwards died after she was shot in the head at the Lighthouse Inn in Wallasey village in the Wirral shortly before midnight on Christmas Eve.

Detectives say the beautician was not believed to have been the intended target of the shooting.

Her family have described her as the “most beautiful and bright star” who would “light up a room as she walked in”.

In a statement released by Merseyside Police, her loved ones said: “Her laugh was infectious, anyone who was around her had a good time, she loved life and had so many amazing plans for the future. She was only just getting started.”
