A mother and daughter were killed last night when gunmen shot them while they were driving to Kingston Public Hospital (KPH).

The police have released the identities of the mother and daughter who were killed in downtown Kingston last night.

They are 39-year-old Lisa Fong and 22-year-old Sasha Francis.

The police said the women were travelling in a car in the vicinity of Matthews Lane and Charles Street when gunmen opened fire on them.

They said the driver lost control of the vehicle, which ran into a wall.

Francis was thrown from the vehicle and killed instantly while her mother was taken to hospital where she later died.

Investigators believe the incident was linked to an earlier shooting in Greenwich Farm during which the younger woman’s boyfriend was shot and injured.

It is believed that the women were on their way to visit the injured man when they were attacked.
