Police investigating double murder in Ste Madeleine

Another double murder has taken place and is engaging the attention of police.

The latest incident occurred at a bar in Ste Madeleine on Saturday night.

The deceased are Owen Danzell, 47, of Cocoyea Village and Terrence Rawlins, 43, of Plaisance Park and Princes Town.

Reports state that at around 8:40pm, both men were liming with another man, a Lance Corporal, in front of Red Chief Bar at Mt Stewart Village, when a vehicle pulled up.

Two men wearing face masks and carrying with firearms came out of the vehicle and began shooting at them and all limers scattered and ran.

However, when the dust cleared, the soldier returned and found Danzell lying on the side of the road, while Rawlins was found down a precipice. Both men died at the scene.
