Ahmed Mohammed Ibrahim, 17, died and another teenager was injured in the incident on Croxteth Drive, near Sefton Park, late on Monday night.

Mr Ibrahim died in hospital and the other youth suffered injuries to his hand and arm.

Three men were arrested on suspicion of murder and police are appealing to the Somali community for help.
