The Hanover police say they have identified a gang member as a person of interest in Friday evening's gruesome slaying of a mother and son in the parish.

Dead are 43-year-old Juliet Grant, a shopkeeper, and her 24-year-old son, Romario Daley, both of Middlesex in the parish.

According to head of the Hanover police, Deputy Superintendent Sharon Beeput, the alleged perpetrator is part of one of the gangs now wreaking havoc in the parish. However, she was tight-lipped on the details of the investigation thus far.

"We don't wish to release the person who we think would have done it yet, as we are still working on some things. So as soon as we are closer to the person, then we will tell you," she said, noting that the investigations are at a delicate stage.

Reports are that the mother and son were at home having dinner with other family members at about 8:30 p.m. when two masked men armed with handguns entered the house through a side door and demanded money. Grant and her son ran in opposite directions, but were chased and shot.
