Thursday, June 6, 2024

Detectives investigating the murder of Lenny Scott have this evening (Thursday, June 6th) charged two men with his murder.


Elias Morgan (25/11/1989), of Highgate Street, Liverpool and Anthony Cleary (24/02/1996), of Smithdown Lane, Liverpool were both charged following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service.


They have been remanded in custody to appear before Preston Magistrates’ Court tomorrow morning (Friday, June 7th)


Lenny’s family have been told of the latest development.


A 29-year-old woman from Liverpool arrested yesterday (Wednesday, June 5th) on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released on bail pending further enquiries.


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.


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.
