A mother and her two-year-old daughter who were shot dead during an attack at their St James home last night have been identified.
They are 33-year-old farmer Nicole Luton and Saskia Mullings of Arcadia, St James.
The two-year-old’s father was also shot and injured in the gun attack.
Reports are that about 11:30 pm, the common-law couple and their four children were at home when their attackers tried to kick open the door.
The parents, in a bid to keep the attackers out, braced the door.
However, the attackers fired shots and the parents and the two-year-old were hit.
They were rushed to hospital where the father was admitted in serious but stable condition, while his spouse and their daughter were pronounced dead.
