Woman shot on Garnett St regains consciousness

Susanna Da Silva who was attacked and shot by two masked men on Friday morning is slowly on the road to recovery, according to relatives.

Da Silva, 26, of Subryanville was taking her mother to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri early Friday morning and had stopped at the home of her sister, Vanuza Da Silva, to collect a package her mother was supposed to take out of the country.

Yesterday, her sister Vanuza Da Silva told this newspaper that “she is doing ok. She is awake, the bullet hit her spine. We are not sure yet if she is paralyzed because she is not feeling from her waist go down. The doctor has to do more CT scans on Tuesday.”

Police in a statement on Friday said that the woman was in a car with other relatives outside the house on Garnett Street, Campbellville when a car with four men drove up. They said two of the men, who were armed with guns, exited the vehicle but as they approached Susanna, she attempted to drive away. The men opened fire, hitting her in the chest. Police also said that after neighbours came out, the suspects drove away.

A senior police official on Saturday had told Stabroek News that while there has been no development in the case, investigators are in the process of checking the footage of every security camera in the area.

On Friday, the family had said that they believed they were being targeted since this was the second time for the year a family member has been attacked. They further said that Da Silva has no enemies.
