A jealous ex-husband is on the run in the mining town of Linden, after he opened fire and shot his former wife and a male friend she was with on Sunday morning.
The incident occurred just before 2 o’ clock on Sunday morning at Half Mile, Linden. Injured are 41-year-old Simone Belle and 41-year-old Sherwin Hughes.
According to the police report, the woman had just arrived home in a car driven by her friend, when several gunshots greeted them. The friend’s wife was reportedly also in the car, according to residents in the area.
The ex-lover was spotted firing gunshots in the direction of the car. He made good his escape and the two were rushed to the hospital in Linden with gunshot injuries.
The woman and the gunman shared a relationship for a number of years and she reportedly ended it several months ago and indicated to him that she was moving on with her life and wanted nothing to do with him.
The man, whose name has not been released, is believed to have become angry once the woman started to see other people.
Investigations into the incident are ongoing. The suspect remains at large.
