The police are searching for four men who attacked and shot two sisters dead in Mona Commons, Papine, St Andrew on Thursday afternoon.

The deceased, Shauna-Kay Hunter, otherwise called ‘Tiffany’, 31; and Raenae Martel, otherwise called ‘Tassy’, 23, were among a group of persons when they were approached by four men travelling on two motorcycles.

Reports are that two of the men jumped from the motorcycles and brandished firearms, with which they opened gunfire.

Hunter ran into a lane nearby, while Martell ran into her yard.

Both women were chased by the gunmen who continued firing at them.

They were both shot and injured.
