A woman who was among three people injured in a drive by shooting tonight, is said to be in serious condition with multiple gunshot injuries to the abdomen.

The police say two men were also shot but their injuries do not appear life threatening.

The incident allegedly occured around 9:05 pm while the trio was at a Cedar Grove house.

A source close to the probe said the shooters drove up to the property in a Toyota Allion and they then opened fire.

The car was yet to be recovered up to the time this report was filed. The police are on the hunt for the assailants.

One of the male shooting victims has been identified as 49-year-old Lawn “TI” Nicholas of Cedar Grove.

He was reportedly rushed to hospital in a private vehicle while an ambulance took the others to hospital, a police source said.

Nicholas was recently granted bail on a charge of attempted murder in relation to the shooting of Dorian Marshall shortly after they left a popular pre-carnival fete in Cedar Grove on July 9.

Marshall, who resides in Donovans, subsequently accused the police, on social media, of arresting the wrong person while he also indicated he had no idea who had shot him that morning.

Meanwhile, tonight’s shooting incident comes about 24 hours after gunmen targeted a popular Jamaican national, firing at least 10 shots after him in the Nut Grove area.

The man, whose name is withheld, was not injured and the matter is under investigation. 

Update

Relatives who broke down in tears at the hospital said that the woman was 19/20 years old.
 
They said she died while receiving treatment at Mount St John’s Medical Centre.
 
The other two male shooting victims are still receiving treatment and are said to be in stable condition.
