TWO women were shot, one fatally, by gunmen along Waltham Park Road in St Andrew, yesterday.

Police have identified the deceased as 49-year-old businesswoman Doraine Brown. However, the name of the injured woman was not released up to press time last night.

According to the police, about 7:00 am the women were standing along 33 Lane when gunmen drove up in a car and opened fire at them. "The two women were hit. Both were rushed to hospital where one died and the other admitted," an investigating officer told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

The police said they were yet to determine what motivated the attack.
