Richie Clayton was shot on Belgrave Road just before 8pm on 25 July 2001.

His two attackers had pulled up in a green Ford Mondeo car outside a gym on Aigburth Road and had then chased him down Belgrave Road firing at him several times. The men had been wearing masks.

After being shot Richie Clayton managed to run to a nearby house but couldn't get in and then ran off to another house but then doubled back to the previous house where he collapsed and died. When he had got to the first house a man that had tried to help him was also shot in the leg.

After the shooting his attackers drove off along Belgrave Road and into Buckland Street. The green Ford Mondeo car was later found burned out in a nearby cul-de-sac. It was thought that they had then run over a footbridge over the railway line at St Michael's station and then gone off through Priory Woods.

He had previously been working out at a gym on Aigburth Road in Aigburth several hours before he was shot but had gone back at around 8pm. He was seen outside the gym talking to another man when the green Ford Mondeo car pulled up.
