Two held after man shot in head leaving pub

Two people were being questioned by police today on suspicion of murder after a man was shot in the head as he left a pub.

Bahman Farjar, aged 44, had just stepped out of the Belgrave pub in Aigburth, Liverpool, with friends when he was targeted at point-blank range by a lone gunman.

A post mortem examination revealed that he died of a single gunshot wound to the head, during the incident on Thursday night.

A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: "Police have arrested a 48-year-old female and a 53-year-old male, both from the Garston area, on suspicion of murder.

"Both remain in police custody."
