A woman and three others were shot and wounded while at a lime in Arouca, on Tuesday night.

According to a police report, at about 8:10 pm, residents of Campbell Lane, off Waterloo Road, Arouca, heard several rapid gunfire ring out.

Upon checking, they saw four people on the ground bleeding from injuries. The four had been shot while one other person was bruised.

They were all taken to the Arima District Hospital where they were treated.

A team of officers—under the supervision of Supt Edwards, ASP Gyan, and Insp Pitt—visited the scene. They were told that the group was liming near the front gate at a home along the roadway, when they saw two men wearing face masks some distance away.

The men reportedly whipped out guns and opened fire on the group.

Investigations are continuing.
