The 51-year-old wife of a prison officer was killed mere moments after she arrived at her home in Malabar yesterday evening.
Up to press time, details were still sketchy, however, Guardian Media was told that two men pounced on Sherry Ann Watson just as she was about to enter her house and opened fire on her. She died on the scene.
Police investigators said the motive was yet to be determined.
The incident occurred at Albert Mark Street, Phase 4 at about 6 pm.
