Reports indicate that just after 12 midnight Mrs. Seetahal was in her vehicle proceeding north along Hamilton-Holder street, Woodbrook when upon reaching the vicinity of the Woodbrook Youth Facility two vehicles pulled alongside her causing her to come to a stop.
One of the vehicles then drove ahead a short distance and pulled across the road, blocking it. The other vehicle pulled alongside Mrs Seetahal and the occupants of that vehicle pulled out their firearms and opened fire.
Residents of the area, on hearing the gunshots contacted the police and emergency health services. When officers arrived on the scene they discovered the attorney slumped in her driver’s seat already dead.
