A woman who was shot in D'Abadie along with a 16-year-old girl has succumbed to her injuries while at the hospital on Monday evening.
According to a police report, at about 1 am on Monday, Monique Griffith, 21, was standing on the road at John Lane when a man approached her with a gun and opened fire. She attempted to run away but fell on the road. A 16-year-old girl who was standing nearby was hit by a stray bullet.
Both victims were taken to the Arima District Health Facility where they were treated and warded. However, Griffith succumbed to her injuries. Griffith, police said, was involved in a relationship with a man who is well known to them.
An autopsy is expected to be performed at the Forensic Science Centre in St James on Tuesday.
