Montague, who was speaking in Parliament today, said that the police are following strong leads and a massive manhunt is now underway.

He also noted that a nephew of one of those killed is a person of interest for his involvement in multiple murders.

“The security forces will be strategically increasing their presence in the public space; there will be roadblocks, curfews, and cordon and search operations. I urge members of the public who may be inconvenienced by this increase in security operations to exercise patience and understanding, and to cooperate with the security force,” Montague told Parliament.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit has identified the deceased as 34-year-old Erica Lesley, 17-year-old Ian Walters, 14-year-old Kertina Walters and Curtis Walters, whose age has not been determined.
