The Linstead police have launched an investigation into the murder of a woman in Victoria District, St Catherine, this morning.

The woman has only been identified as a 57-year-old labourer.

The man reportedly asked for a male relative, who was not at home.

As the man left he reportedly fired several shots, killing the woman.
