MORE than £12,000 was raised in less than a day for the family of Elle Edwards, who was killed in a shooting on Christmas Eve.
The 26-year-old was celebrating with her friends and sister at the Lighthouse Pub in Wallasey Village, Wirral Mersesyide on Christmas Eve when she was shot and killed just before midnight.
Several shots were fired at the front of the pub, hitting her in the head and injuring four other men.
Police have confirmed that beautician Elle was probably not the intended target of the shooting.
A 30-year-old man from Tranmere has been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.
A 19-year-old woman from Rock Ferry was also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
Kirby Fraser created a GoFundMe page on Tuesday December 27th to raise money for Elle’s family during this difficult time.
A post on the site reads: “Elle Marlene Edwards. You will always be with us, your bright smile and infectious laugh will never be forgotten.
“Due to the devastating incident on Christmas Eve that resulted in the tragic loss of our beautiful Elle May, I want to help raise funds for our family at this difficult time.”
People have visited the page to donate and also to offer their condolences.
