“The woman, whose age could not be ascertained, has been identified as Sashauna Small of a Central Village address. Both of them were at the board dwelling in Hopedale when they were pounced  upon by gunmen,” an officer at the Corporate Communication Network told Loop News reporter Claude Mills.

Reports are that residents in Hopedale heard gunfire and called the police.

Following a search, the bodies of the two were found in the house.

Investigators say Chambers was aligned to the Andre "Blackman" Bryan faction of the Clansman Gang.

These are the first murders in the St Catherine North Division since the state of emergency was lifted on Wednesday.
