A woman was shot and injured just outside the bus park on Burke Road, Spanish Town in the vicinity of the Tastee fast food establishment about 11:00 Tuesday morning as violence continues in the Old Capital.

The woman, who is said to be a fruits vendor, is reported to be in critical condition.

A gang rivalry has claimed several lives in and outside the bus park towards the latter part of 2017.

It has reportedly triggered an exodus of business people from the area.
