‘Lovely hardworking’ teenage boy was SHOT to death in Liverpool – police appeal for dashcam footage


A teenage boy described as ‘lovely and hardworking’ was shot to death in Liverpool.


Ellis Cox, 19, was fatally shot in the Aintree area of the city on Sunday night.

Police were called to the Liver Industrial Estate, close to Taskers, just after 11.10pm by North West Ambulance Service paramedics who were treating him.

Cox was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.


Now Merseyside Police has launched an investigation into his death, issuing an appeal for anyone with any information or dashcam footage to come forward. 

Search for gunman who killed Ellis Cox enters third day as police have informed his next of kin who are being supported by specialist family liaison officers.

One of Mr Cox’s neighbours told The Liverpool Echo: ‘I’m really shocked. He was a lovely lad, a really good kid. He was dead polite and friendly – always said hello and smiled. 

‘And he was hardworking. You’d see him going out to work early every morning.

‘There are loads of gangs who hang out down that path on their bikes. But he wasn’t like that – he was the last person I’d have thought of this happening to. It’s just awful, really scary.’ 

Other neighbours said they have been living in fear since his death as one young mother told the paper she has instructed her daughter to stay inside since the incident.
