Police investigators have confirmed that Shemara Todd, the wife of businessman Corey Todd, has been shot.
In a brazen early evening attack on Friday, gunmen shot and seriously injured the wife of a well-known entertainment entrepreneur and executive in St Andrew.
Reports are that around 6:00 pm, the woman was driving a grey Mercedes Benz motorcar along Washington Boulevard in the vicinity of Patrick Drive, when she was ambushed by two men on motorcycles, who were reportedly lying in waiting along the roadway.
The men opened fire at the woman, hitting her multiple times.
As a result of the sudden attack on her, the vehicle which the woman drove hit several other vehicles with significant impacts before ending up colliding in the wall of a home.
The gunmen fled the scene after the shooting, and the woman was assisted to hospital by a passing motorists.
Her condition is unknown at this time, and it is unclear if anyone else was seriously hurt as a result of the attack.
The incident caused an extensive traffic pile-up along the busy Washington Boulevard corridor which is already significantly affected by dislocation brought on by pipe-laying and expansion works in the area.
Police investigations continue into the attack.
