“It’s important obviously that we find out what happens, not only from the community perspective but for her family. As you can appreciate, a 27-year-old woman is still very young and her family have lost a loved one. We need to help them with moving on and getting some answers for them.”
Det. Supt Smith said the gun was unlicensed and is yet to be recovered.
“To possess a handgun, you’ve got to have an appropriate licence and appropriate training and this is a clear example where things go wrong if you have got those sorts of training.”
