The community of 10 Miles in Bull Bay, St Thomas remains tense after two brothers were among three men killed in two separate gun attacks in the area on Thursday.

The deceased brothers have been identified as 28-year-old Oshane Prince and 24-year-old Swaynson Reece, both masons of Tankwell Heights in 10 Miles.

The other deceased man’s identity has not been ascertained.

In the first incident, the brothers were killed after gunmen invaded their home.

Reports are that about 12:40 am on Thursday, gunmen kicked open the front door of a house where the two brothers lived.

The brothers were both shot in the upper body sometime later.

During the early morning gun attack in the area, it was also reported that two houses were set ablaze by the hoodlums, who eventually fled the area.

The police have not yet established a motive for the killings, but residents believe that gang violence may have played a role in the early morning gun attack.

Meanwhile, a man was shot dead in the Bull Bay area at around 3pm on Thursday.

The police were on the scene up to evening processing the crime scene.

Investigations are ongoing into the developments.
