Woman visiting from the US shot dead in Portmore
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 | 12:39 PM

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Twenty-nine-year-old Ava Grant, a Jamaican residing in Fort Lauderdale in the United States, was shot and killed by unknown assailants Sunday morning in Portmore, St Catherine.
The Bridgeport police report that about 10:10 am, armed men entered a home in the area and opened gunfire hitting Grant and another female. Both were taken to hospital where Grant was pronounced dead and the other woman treated.

Ray Grant, Ava’s younger brother, told the Jamaica Observer that Grant, who was five months pregnant, left the USA with the father of her unborn child to visit the island.
He said he was told that Ava was at a scheme in Portmore with three females and a young boy when two men rode up on motor bikes. The men asked her if she knew “Andrew” before shooting her up to seven times.
Grant said Andrew is the name of Ava’s ex-boyfriend.
According to Grant, prior to visiting Jamaica Ava was attempting to help Andrew get to the US, but gave up when he kept failing requirements to gain entry.
He said that his sister has accomplished most of her goals in life, including finishing a nursing degree, “her only dream was to have a family”.
Police investigations continue.

    Seet deh, in black and white. Could be any one of us going on a vacation in Jamaica and just because of who we know, they execute us on the spot……with no trial.

    Now you want to tell me that these miscreants should be brought to trial…..hell no!! They had no sympathy for a pregnant woman or the other female, who just happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Both females were innocent Jamaicans whose lives were cut short because of some crackheads who don’t give a fu*k. I hope they are quickly identify and given an immediate death sentence at/by the hands of the police. Of course, the odds of that happening is next to none, since no one saw anything, all they heard was gunshots.

  • milikeit says:

    When your trying to help people by either giving your time or even gifts, they become dependent on you. Once yuh stop gi dem, dem hate yuh rass. Typical bullshit. Lesson learn: If it’s not well deserving family or friends, don’t gi nobody nothing. When di beggy beggy come roun yuh, just gi dem advice on how not to beg. KMRT

    nobody has the right to take a life, but this girl was no stranger to the killer and there was animosity between them.

    u don’t have to do ppl anything these days for them to kill u, but most times sumting inna sumting.

  • Anonymous says:

    Why are these Jamaican Journalist so lazy? Why do we have to get such a pertinent piece of information from a fellow blogger that Ava Grant was married to Andrew? I was wondering why she would be helping her ex-boyfriend to migrate and by what means.

    What is gain by killing this pregnant woman? Didn’t Eva anticipate the risk in going in person to have him sign a divorce paper, knowing she was pregnant and the type of person he is? I guess it doesn’t have to make sense.

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

  • Kay says:

    So after reading some of these comments all I can do is smh at the situation. Some of you don’t understand the pain my family is going through right now. Ava was a sweetheart and had alot of good things going. Next accomplishment was starting a family. No matter what the situation was he had no right no take the life of my cousin and unborn child. I am sure she aint the only woman that exist.Nobody perfects and why do some Jamaicans haffi be so bad mind and jealous of each other. Anybdy who can brave enough to kill a pregnant woman shouldn’t be afraid to die. Rip Ava gone but not forgotten.
