THE tragic moments before nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel was shot dead have been caught on CCTV.
Two shots are heard followed by a brief silence before a third fires out.
At that point the gunman had entered Olivia’s home and was struggling with her mum, before a fourth shot.
It comes after her heartbroken family warned a picture of the schoolgirl “will haunt you forever” as they slammed her “scum killer”.
Little Olivia, 九, was shot dead at her home in 利物浦 after being caught in the crossfire of a suspected gang attack.
Police are still hunting the masked gunman who burst into her home and sprayed bullets with “complete disregard”.
Olivia’s uncle Peter Korbel has now paid tribute to Olivia along with a poignant photo of the youngster smiling at the camera.
他写了: “Our family will remember this picture of my beautiful niece with happiness and pride…this tiny cheeky little girl with the Korbel attitude thrown in and then some xx but to the scum that’s done this, this picture is going to haunt you for the rest of your days…
“R.I.P BBY GIRL NYT GORGEOUS XX”.
Olivia’s cousin Rebecca also paid tribute to the “疯狂的, 批评是当之无愧的” youngster in a moving post.
她写了: “女婴, I don’t think I or the family will ever find the words to describe the heartache we have all felt the past 24 小时.
“We haven’t just lost ’Our Liv’, we’ve lost a daughter, a sister, a niece, a cousin and a granddaughter. Our little Liv who was full of life, full of sass and most definitely knew what she wanted in life. You had so much potential and a full life to lead beautiful.
“I can only apologise for the cruel world we live in and the monsters in it. My heart aches so much and I don’t think we will ever digest what’s happened.
“We WILL find who did this and we WILL get justice for you baby girl. 刘易斯 & I love you SO much it hurts. Forever 9 years young”.
Rebecca said she knows the family has “not only the hearts of the city but the hearts of a nation behind us all”.
她补充说: “Let’s put this into action and get these weapons off our street’s. No other family should EVER have to endure the pain we as a family and especially my aunty Cheryl have experienced.
“No other child should have to lose their lives to these senseless crimes. Forever and always in our hearts baby”.
It comes after police confirmed the intended shooting target has been detained in hospital for breaching his licence conditions.
Joseph Nee had recently been released from prison after being handed a 45-month sentence for burglary.
这位 35 岁的, who lives close to Olivia’s home, was part of a gang who led cops on a 125mph chase through Cheshire and Merseyside.
Nee was previously caged for six-and-a-half years in 2009 for his part in a gang that flooded Liverpool with heroin and crack cocaine.
A manhunt is still ongoing for the “cowardly” Dennehytaught舞蹈, who fled the scene after the horror unfolded.
It emerged today the net was closing in after two sources came forward with a potential name of the suspect.
Raids have been carried out across Liverpool today linked to gun crime in the city following a spate of shootings that left three people dead including little Olivia.
It is believed the innocent youngster was caught in the crossfire of a tit-for-tat gang attack.
Officers told yesterday how the bloodbath unfolded when Nee rushed into Olivia’s home to escape a gunman who shot at him and a second male on the street.
Mum Cheryl appeared to have opened the front door to see what the commotion was when he forced his way inside.
The shooter then followed and began peppering the home with bullets – hitting Cheryl first then Olivia, who was standing behind her mum.
可悲的是, Olivia was declared dead shortly after, while her mum was treated for a gunshot wound to the wrist.
Intended target Nee was treated for multiple wounds to his upper body.
As Olivia lay dying, his friends picked him up in a black Audi and took him to hospital.
Merseyside Police yesterday issued a passionate plea for information as they vowed to “not rest until those who are responsible are put behind bars”.
