Those killed are 34-year-old Adrian Nation, otherwise called ‘Blue’, a chef of 14 Street in Greenvale, and a man known only as Lloyd Levy.

A man and woman were also shot and injured.

Police believe Nation was the target of the gun attack.

According to a police report, about 8:05 pm the four people were among patrons at a party in the community when gunmen pounced and opened fire.

Superintendent McCalla said the police have heightened security measures in the community

“Within the next couple of weeks, there will be no permit for parties and, any other illegal event that they (residents) attempt to carry out in the area, those will be shutdown forthwith and there will be a strong police presence inside the space and surrounding areas,” he said.
