Po­lice are cur­rent­ly in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of a woman in Tu­na­puna late on Tues­day night.

The woman was iden­ti­fied as Caris­sa Pierre, 22, of 5 Lovell Trace, Tu­na­puna.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice re­ports, at about 9.15 pm res­i­dents heard a vol­ley of shots in the com­mu­ni­ty. When they checked out­side, Pierre was found dead on the road­way. She ap­peared to have been shot about six times in the head.

A mo­tive is yet to be de­ter­mined.

Pierre was the third woman killed in the past four days.

On Sat­ur­day, Rachel Mo­hammed, 30, and her fe­male friend were shot at by a gun­man as they stood near Mo­hammed’s Dook­iesingh Street, St Au­gus­tine home around 11.20 pm. Mo­hammed sub­se­quent­ly died at hos­pi­tal.

Hours be­fore that, Ne­tanya Mo­ham­dal­ly, 17, was found dead in a ravine at Ex­change Lots, Cou­va, by a farmer. Both her hands and feet were tied to­geth­er with rope and her head was al­so bashed in. An au­top­sy re­vealed the Ch­agua­nas res­i­dent died of chop wounds to the neck.

Pierre’s killing pushed the mur­der toll for the year to 114.
