Woman shot in neck by fiancé succumbs to injuries

Neil Madramootoo, a 29-year-old engineer, was charged with the attempted murder and released on $500,000 bail.

The victim, in a video statement to the Police from her hospital bed in October, identified Madramootoo as the shooter.

He was set to return to court on November 8, 2023.

At the time of the shooting, the couple was packing items in Madramootoo’s company vehicle to be taken to a location in Port Mourant where their bridal shower/reception was expected to take place.

The couple’s wedding was due to take place last month. The brother said they were awakened by the gunshot at about 07:30 hrs.

He said when he initially heard the explosion, he heard Ashmin’s fiancé in the house shouting that somebody shot her, but when the rest of the family ran out, the fiancé was still in the house.

The family rushed the injured woman to the Port Mourant Hospital, and when they returned home, the Police visited and searched the house. The ceiling had an opening, and that is where the Police found a gun. They also found a magazine, and three live rounds.

The fiancé had claimed that someone shot her outside the house and ran away.
