POLICE have launched an island-wide manhunt for the suspects responsible for two separate shooting incidents that left two men dead late last night.
The country's murder count for 2015 now stands at 47, according to The Tribune's records.
The first shooting ocurred around 9.30pm off Kemp Road when, according to police, a man was standing outside his vehicle when he was approached by a man known to him and shot multiple times.
The suspect fled the area on foot in an unknown direction. The victim was taken to hospital by ambulance but died a short time later.
In the second incident, shortly before 10pm, police say a man had just closed his barbershop on Baillou Hill Road South when he was approached by three males. A struggle ensued, which resulted in the man being shot in the head and face.
The suspects fled in a waiting vehicle. The victim died on the scene.
Anyone with information on these homicides is asked to contact police at 911 or 919, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 328-TIPS.
