Police are on the hunt for an assailant who shot a secondary school teacher at her home on Saturday.
About 1 p.m. in Carapan, an armed assailant entered the home of 35-year-old Nadine Delplesche and shot her in the stomach.
At the time of the incident, Delplesche was reportedly at home with her son doing house chores in her kitchen when a man entered the house and shot her.
She was taken to the Stubbs Polyclinic where she was initially treated before being transferred to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH) in Kingstown, where she underwent emergency surgery.
Police say that the woman is recuperating at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital and is said to be in stable condition.
Delplesche is a teacher at the St. Vincent Grammar School.
Investigations into this matter are continuing.
