Further arrest in Lenny Scott murder

Monday, March 18, 2024

DETECTIVES investigating the murder of Lenny Scott have made another arrest.


A 30-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested last week on suspicion of Conspiracy to Commit Murder and has now been bailed.


We launched a murder investigation after 33-year-old 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.


His funeral took place in Rainford last week.


Our thoughts remain with his loved ones, and they continue to be supported by trained officers.


A dedicated team of detectives and staff are continuing their relentless hunt for Lenny’s killers.


Also arrested last week were a 63-year-old woman from Liverpool arrested on suspicion of Conspiracy to Commit Murder. She was interviewed and later bailed pending further enquiries.


Also arrested on Tuesday were a 34-year-old man from Liverpool who was arrested on suspicion of Possession with Intent to Supply and Money Laundering and was released under investigation.


Two other people, a man aged 54 and a woman aged 51, from Liverpool were arrested on suspicion of Possession with Intent to Supply and later released under investigation. While this warrant was conducted by officers investigating Lenny’s murder the arrests are not directly related.


There have been four previous arrests- all from Liverpool – as part of our investigation. A 34-year-old man and a 25-year-old man on suspicion of murder, a 37-year-old man on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder and a 27-year-old man on suspicion of assisting an offender. They are all on conditional bail pending further enquiries.


We have a large investigation team assigned to this case, who are carrying out enquiries throughout the North-West to identify all those involved in Lenny’s murder and bring them to justice.

We would continue to ask for people to come forward with CCTV, dashcam or Ring doorbell footage.
