Lancashire Police have launched a murder investigation following the death of a woman from a suspected gunshot wound on Sunday. Officers were called shortly after 3:00pm to King Street, Blackburn, following reports a woman was unresponsive and gunshots had been heard in the area. The woman, who is believed to be a 19-year-old from Blackburn, was taken to hospital but later died. A post-mortem will take place in due course but police currently believe the cause of death was a gunshot wound. It was reported that a vehicle, thought to be a light coloured or metallic green Toyota Avensis, was seen leaving the scene.
A car matching the description was later recovered from Wellington Road and police are appealing for anyone who may have seen the car to contact them.
