Police seize car used in Mammee Bay double murder

Detectives are now hunting for gunmen who carried out a brazen daytime double murder at a beach in Mammee Bay, St Ann on Sunday morning.

Police report that Oniel Wynter, 32, and Jamiel Ellis, 24, were on the beach when men drove up in a Toyota motorcar.

The men exited the vehicle and pounced upon both men, shooting them repeatedly. Both died on the spot.

Police were quick on the scene and, in the gunmen's bid to escape, the vehicle they were driving crashed and they were forced to make their escape on foot.

While the gunmen escaped, the police seized the vehicle.

“We are going to make some headway into this double murder,” one cop from St Ann told Loop News early Monday morning.
