The Clarendon Police have taken six people into custody in relation to the early morning quadruple killing in Havannah Heights in the parish on Sunday.

The four people who were killed include two sisters and their boyfriends.

The women have been identified as 33-year-old Tashana Whyte and her younger sister 25-year-old Sherona Whyte.

The male victims have been identified as 19-year-old chef Luke Newman and 25-year-old construction worker Michael Salmon.

They are all from Havannah Heights, Phase Three in the Denbigh section of Clarendon.

The execution style killings occurred just after 12:00 on Sunday morning at the home of the Whyte sisters in Havannah Heights.

The incident has left many residents tense and relatives of the victims in shock.

Head of the Clarendon Police, Senior Superintendent Glenford Miller, says based on the preliminary information gathered by detectives, the murders were a reprisal.

The Clarendon Commanding Officer says the killings might be gang related.

There were also reports that the killings might be linked to a lottery scamming scheme that went bad.

SSP Miller says while they’re not theorising that at the moment, detectives will follow all possible leads.

He also disclosed that the intended target was not among those killed.

He says the intended target is a male who is a relative of the two female victims.

According to the police the intended target may’ve killed another man recently.

Meanwhile, SSP Miller says they’ve taken six persons in custody who may be able to assist with the investigation.
