Further arrests in Lenny Scott murder investigation

Wednesday, June 5, 2024

Detectives investigating the murder of Lenny Scott have this morning (Wednesday, June 5th) made three further arrests.


A 34-year-old man and a 28-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of murder and a 29-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. They are all from Liverpool and are currently in custody.


We launched a murder investigation after 33-year-old father-of-three Lenny was shot outside a gym on Peel Road in Skelmersdale on Thursday, 8th February.


Despite the best efforts of emergency services, Lenny, from Prescot, sadly died later in hospital. Our thoughts remain with his loved ones, and they continue to be supported by trained officers. They are aware of the latest developments.


The two men arrested today have previously been arrested in connection with our investigation. The woman has not been arrested before today.


Five other people have been arrested as part of our enquiries and are currently on bail.


Anyone with information can call us on 101 quoting log 1155 of 9th February.
