(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN) — A fight that went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia last week may have been the mo­tive for the mur­der of 18-year-old Tu­na­puna res­i­dent Maria Nep­tune.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, at about 10.30 pm Nep­tune was stand­ing in her yard at #3 Ma­coya Set­tle­ment when two men walked up to her. Po­lice said they both opened fire and Nep­tune was shot sev­er­al times in the chest.

Nep­tune was tak­en to the Er­ic Williams Med­ical Sci­ences Com­plex, Mt Hope, where she died while un­der­go­ing treat­ment.

Guardian Me­dia was told that last week Nep­tune and a 16-year-old got in­to a fight with a 21-year-old woman. The fight, in which one woman was se­vere­ly beat­en, was record­ed and post­ed on Face­book where it went vi­ral. Po­lice be­lieve one of the women who was em­bar­rassed over the video or­gan­ised the at­tack on Nep­tune.

Rel­a­tives are hop­ing for swift jus­tice as they claim that the po­lice were giv­en crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion in the case.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing.
