Quadruple murder in Riversdale, St Catherine
Four persons, three women and a male, were brutally murdered in their home in the community of Top Crawl district in Riversdale, St Catherine on Tuesday.
They have been identified as Kerrian Higgins, Dorothy Higgins, Dianne Johnson and Kevin.
Initial reports suggest that three men, dressed in black clothing, wearing masks and armed with handguns, gained entry to the house by forcing open a front door and grille.
They reportedly questioned the now deceased persons before opening gunfire killing them on the spot. They then escaped.
Residents heard the explosions and summoned the police.
It is understood that children were in the house at the time of the incident but weren't harmed.
Councillor William Cytall of the Troja Division described the incident as sad.
"This is tragic and wicked. I just don't know what could cause this gruesome incident," Cytall said.
