Tributes have been paid to an innocent 26-year-old woman who was tragically killed in a horrifying pub shooting on Christmas Eve.
Elle Edwards was celebrating Christmas at the Lighthouse Inn, in Wallasey, a town near Liverpool, with her friends when she suffered fatal gunshot wounds.
Friends of hers have paid tribute to the beautician as a ‘mad diamond’ and ‘most beautiful angel’ as a major police investigation is underway to find her killer.Four men who were also in the packed pub were shot in the attack, including a 28-year-old who remains in critical condition in hospital.
The gunman is understood to have fled the scene in a dark vehicle, believed to be a Mercedes Benz, as bystanders desperately tried to save Ms Edwards’ life.
The local studio, Nova Beauty, where Ms Edwards worked, said staff were “heartbroken” to hear the news.
She wrote: ‘Absolutely speechless… Heaven won the most beautiful angel. We are all heartbroken, thinking of your entire family at this time Elle, thank you for all the laughter and happiness you brought into our lives, rest in heaven angel, love from your team at Nova.
Her friend Tyreece Hon described her as a ‘big sister’ in a touching tribute.
He wrote: ‘So last night this angel gained her wings and headed for the stars. Ellie, you were always a big sister to me and I can’t believe you were taken away so soon. My heart goes out to your family who welcomed me like a son. I love you. Shine bright, crazy diamond. Until we meet again.
And her friend Britt Hughes said that “Christmas will never be the same again” after her tragic passing and that she “made me so happy inside when she walked into the room.”
She added that Ms. Edwards would leave her with “giggling fits” and that she would “miss my beautiful best friend so much.”
She also made a desperate plea, saying: ‘When will people stop shooting?’
His family have been informed and today, which should be a day of celebration with friends, they are coming to terms with this tragic loss.
“She was enjoying Christmas with her sister and her friends in what should have been a peaceful time.
“What her family is going through right now is incomprehensible.”
Ms Coombs said they were still trying to establish a motive for the ‘insensitive shooting’ and appealed to anyone with information to come forward.
She said: “We believe the gunman fired towards the main entrance to the pub, we know minutes later a dark colored vehicle, possibly an A class Mercedes, was seen leaving the pub car park so we are particularly keen to speak to that man and anyone who knows anything about that vehicle.
We will not rest until we find those responsible for this terrible, terrible crime.
Police also confirmed that four others suffered injuries in the attack, including the 28-year-old who is in critical condition.
A 22-year-old man was injured in the legs, while a 24-year-old suffered a hand injury and a 33-year-old was injured in the wrist. Police say none of those injuries are life-threatening.
A neighbor who heard the shots in Wallasey last night said she assumed they were Christmas celebration fireworks.
“I heard the shots, I thought it was actually fireworks because it was almost midnight,” Jenny Hough, 77, said of her surprise when she heard what had happened in the nearby pub.
