The victims are 91-year-old Doris Frame and 15-year-old Jesse Spence, said the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

In relation to the two men picked up during an operation in Lucea about 2 o’clock this morning, the JCF said their identities are being withheld pending further investigations.

It also stated that three men from Lucea are ‘persons of interest’, and they should surrender to Lucea police by 6 o’clock this evening.

THEY ARE:

The JCF, in the meantime, said: “Reports from the Lucea police are that, about 9pm, 91-year-old Doris Frame and 15-year-old Jesse Spence were pounced upon at their home by four armed men who opened fire at them.

“The police were alerted and, on their arrival, Jessie and Miss Frame were seen with multiple gunshot wounds. They were taken to hospital where they were pronounced dead,” the JCF further said.
