Armed police arrest a man in hunt for killer of nine-year-old Olivia

Armed police officers have arrested a man on suspicion of the murder of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel.

Olivia was the innocent victim of a suspected gangland shooting in Liverpool.

A Merseyside police statement said:

“We have arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of the murder of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel.


“The man, who is from the Huyton area, was also arrested on two counts of attempted murder.

“The arrest came after an operation involving armed officers in the Merseyside area last night, Thursday, August 25.

“The man is currently in custody where he is being questioned by detectives.

Olivia’s family described Olivia as a “unique, chatty, nosey little girl who broke the mould when she was born.

They added: “Although her life was short, her personality certainly wasn’t.

“She lived it to the most she could, and would blow people away with her wit and kindness.”
