Four persons were fatally shot in two separate cases of double murder on Monday morning.

A set of police investigators are currently at a scene along Spanish Town Road where two women were killed, while another is at a scene in the region of the McCooks Pen main road in St Catherine, where the bodies of a man and woman were found with gunshot wounds. 

In St Catherine, residents reported hearing explosions about 3:00 a.m. The bodies of the deceased were later discovered about 7:00 a.m. in the area's bushy terrain. 

In St Andrew, two bodies of two females were found, one laying on the side of the roadway and the other in a car, with several gunshot wounds.

They were found the entrance of a facility belonging to the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), a few metres from a Wray & Nephew office. 

It is believed that at least one of the females is an employee of the NSWMA.

The details of the killing are still unclear, however early reports say the attack occurred sometime after 5:00 a.m. That is the usual time for the employees to arrive at work.
