Residents of Farham Road in Olympic Gardens were plunged into mourning following the death of 25-year-old Shantol 'Ce Ce' Chance, who was killed on Monday in what her relatives believe was a case of mistaken identity.
Reports from the Olympic Gardens police are that at about 1:53 p.m., Chance, a mother of two, was selling grocery items in a shop when she was shot several times by a lone gunman.
Residents say Chance received several shots, including one that flew through her jaw bone.
The police were alerted and she was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Paula Williams, the victim's mother said that she was more devastated to learn that her daughter died after she was mistaken for another woman.
"She was staying in the shop for somebody. She just come from school, she went to pick up her daughter, and what I understand is that the person come in and ask for a phonecard and she gave him. Then he ordered a juice and as she reach for the juice from the fridge, that's it; she not even get fi come back up."
She was killed in front her two children, who up to this very moment hadn't received counselling.
Williams, who now has to care for them, is seeking help to ensure that the children won't be affected.
Williams told our news team that she found out about the mistaken identity on Tuesday from the alleged intended victim.
"She tell me say: 'Paula a me dem come for'. Is like she know say somebody was after her. So is like dem send fi kill a woman but dem never say if a young or old. How you fi have idea that somebody after you and you make my daughter stay in there?"
Tension is in the community earlier this year, however, residents could not say if it was linked to the killing.
