According to reports, Patrick and Pete had gone to the area to purchase coconuts, after which explosions were heard. After a search of the area, the bullet-riddled bodies of the two Kingston men along with Malty were found.

  

Investigators report that less than an hour later on the same day, two men were shot and injured in another incident, in the neighboring community of Gilbraltor.

And while crime scene detectives searched for clues in Gilbraltor, they were called to the scene of another crime – this time in Rockfort, East Kingston where six people were shot, three fatally.

Police report that a group of persons were sitting at a bar in Rockfort, when criminals attacked and opened fire on the group.

The criminals then went to another area and shot and injured two other persons.
