A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a father as he waited to pick up his daughter from dance class.
James Taylor, 34, was shot dead in his car as he waited on Holy Cross Close, in Liverpool, at 8pm on February 7.
Witnesses described hearing a number of gunshots, while police said that they believed it was a ‘targeted attack’.
A male suspect, 35, was arrested on February 9, Merseyside police confirmed.
Earlier this week, officers raided four properties across Liverpool as part of their investigation.
The day after the attack Det Chief Supt Mark Kameen said: ‘The victim was sat in vehicle waiting for his daughter at a dance academy when he was approached and a firearm was discharged.
‘Casings recovered at the scene relate to a handgun but I must stress we are still at the early stages at our investigation.
‘One of the particularly aggravating and horrific elements to this shooting, no shooting is acceptable in Merseyside, but the fact is there was children in the area and the victim’s own daughter was in the dance school.
‘This is a vile act which has crossed a line.’
