Among the dead are two women and a man in a triple murder in Bounty Hall, Trelawny.
Three other persons were injured in the attack. They are reportedly admitted in critical condition.
Head of the Area One Police, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Clifford Chambers, says the triple murder may have been linked to gang conflict.
Police investigators are also probing whether the attack may have been as a result of mistaken identity.
