A woman is dead and her husband is in a critical condition at hospital following a shooting in Penal on Tuesday morning.
The deceased is 34-year-old Padminie Seema Bridgelal.
Her husband Rajesh Bridgelal, 35, is at the San Fernando General Hospital.
Police stated that at around 1:30am, the couple was returning home from a wake when their car was struck by a wagon and the occupants opened fire on them.
A resident along the Penal Rock Road told police that he observed two men of Hispanic descent walking west along the road and shortly after a silver Note picked them up.
He then saw his neighbour Rajesh walking along the road suffering from gunshot wounds to his face and body.
The man assisted him. Padminie’s body was found slumped in the front passenger seat of a dark green Mazda 323 with gunshot wounds.
Police are trying to determine a motive for the attack.
