The singer is said to be “shocked and terrified” by a targeted attack that seriously injured her children’s uncle and grandfather on Wednesday .
Karl Dures, 51, and his son Craig Dures, 27, were shot in the leg and face as they stood on the corner of Lance Close in Everton .
A drive-by shooting gunned down two members of X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson ’s family.
Ms Ferguson is linked to the victims having dated Karl’s son, also called Karl and brother to Craig, and had two children with him; Lillie May and Karl.
They pair split before she appeared on X Factor in 2010, but the families have remained closed with the singer describing her ex as an “active father”.
According to the Sunday Mirror, a friend to Ms Ferguson said: “This is very scary for everyone.
“Rebecca is absolutely shocked by it. Obviously her first thought is for the children who are still a big part of Karl and his family’s lives.
“Rebecca always puts their welfare first. Her priority is to make sure they’re safe and that they feel secure at all times.”
The two victims remained in hospital this weekend after taking themselves to Royal Liverpool Hospital in the wake of the shooting.
Three people have also been arrested by armed police Manchester in connection with the shooting .
A 36-year-old man from Kirkby was apprehended in Didsbury on suspicion of attempted murder, while a 32-year-old man and 26-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Ms Ferguson has been touring in Europe throughout the ordeal, last night performing in Cologne after appearing in Berlin on the night of the shooting.
