Two females, including a 14-year-old girl, were reportedly among four family members who were shot and killed during an invasion of their Hanover home by unknown assailants early Tuesday morning (June 13).

Police have not yet released the identities of the deceased.

Reports are that at approximately 1:00 am, gunmen invaded a home in Mount Pleasant, Hanover and shot the four persons dead.

No motive has yet been established for the deadly attack.

Opposition Spokesman on National Security, Peter Bunting recently expressed concern for the country’s spiralling murder rate.

In a statement, Mr Bunting said the murder rate is spiraling out of control with the latest JCF statistics revealing
that 639 murders have occurred up to June 10, or a 19 percent increase in the number of murders year-to-date
compared to 2016.

The 137 murders committed in May reflected the highest month since the Tivoli Operation in 2010.
