CAHILL MESSAGE FOR RHYS FAMILY
Tim Cahill is shocked at death of young Evertonian.
Tim Cahill has spoken of his shock and sadness at the death of the young boy murdered in Liverpool on Wednesday night.
11-year old Rhys Jones, an Everton supporter, was killed by a bullet fired at him in the car-park of a public house and Cahill, like everyone else, is stunned by the awful crime.
"It's unthinkable that a young kid playing football can end up being killed," he told evertonfc.com.
"My heart, prayers and sympathy go out to the family. I've got young children of my own and I can't begin to imagine just how Rhys's family are feeling right now.
"I just hope that whoever carried out this act is brought to justice. It's unbelievable and such a tragic waste of a young life."
Police on Merseyside arrested two youths on suspicion of murder on Thursday morning.
