A Venezuelan national, who has lived in Trinidad for several years, was shot and wounded during a home invasion on Monday night.
Andreina Briceño Brown, activist and founder/director of La Casita Hispanic Cultural Centre, was shot and wounded after three armed men stormed her house in Tumpuna Gardens, Arima.
The men fired a few shots at Briceño Brown, hitting her in the shoulder and head.
The suspects grabbed a cell phone and other small belongings and then escaped in a waiting vehicle.
Brown’s husband took her to the Arima Hospital. She is in stable condition and was transferred to Mt Hope Hospital.
Police are continuing investigations.
