Dead is 45-year-old Karesha Brissett.
According to relatives, Brissett moved to Florida from Jamaica several years ago.
Reports are that, Brissett’s body was discovered by Port St Lucie police late Tuesday morning when a friend went to her home after she failed to show up for work.
An alert was raised after the friend observed that the back sliding glass door to her home had been broken.
Upon arrival on the scene, officers discovered 13 spent shell casings on the rear patio of the house.
Investigators theorize that Brissett was shot and killed through the sliding glass door, without her assailants enter the premises.
