Reports by the Grange Hill police are that shortly after 12:30 am, on Thursday November 16, the taxi operator and his teenage daughter were asleep at their home, at Carlton Street in Grange Hill, Westmoreland.

They were both rushed to the Savanna- la- mar hospital, where they were admitted.  The police say they are now in search of both gunmen, one of whose identity is already known to them.
