Four shot, two fatally, in Riverton Meadows

Four persons were shot, two fatally, in two separate incidents in the Riverton Meadows area of St Andrew on Sunday.

The deceased were identified as Orlando Turner and Oraine Davey. No ages were given up to news time.

Reports are that about 8:00 p.m., residents heard a number of loud explosions and alerted the police.

Two men were subsequently found suffering from gunshot wounds.

They were rushed to hospital, where Turner was pronounced dead.

Less than an hour later, while investigators were at that scene, they were called over to Riverton Crescent, where two men were found with gunshot wounds.

The men were taken to hospital, where Davey was pronounced dead.

The police are investigating if the two incidents were related, and if the second shooting was in response to the first incident.

A team of officers from Hunts Bay Police Station is presently in the area.
