The Police say they are intensifying their search for gunmen who this morning murdered a 12-year old boy and his mother at their home in Tucker, St. James.

Dead are 49 year old Yvette McLean and Devonte Haughton. Devonte was a student at Hopewell High School in Hanover.

Head of the St. James Police, Senior Superintendent of Police Steve McGregor,say the matter appears to be a case of mistaken identity and linked with a previous murder which took place two weeks ago.
