A woman was shot and killed and two men injured after gunmen opened fire at patrons at a wedding  in Negril, Westmoreland, on Saturday evening.

The dead woman is said to be the daughter-in-law of the bride and groom.

It is reported that about 6:15 p.m., a wedding was taking place on the compound of Shields Hotel in Negril when armed men, travelling on a motorcycle, gained access to a neighbouring property and opened fire on the wedding party through the fence.

The bridal party and patrons at the wedding ran in various directions.

When the shooting subsided, the two men and the woman were discovered suffering from gunshot wounds.

They were rushed to a medical facility where the two men were treated and the woman pronounced dead.
