The Clarendon Police have nabbed two men, they believe are linked to last night's shocking killing of four people, including three boys, at a house in Monymusk, Hayes, Clarendon. 

The two are now being questioned by investigators. 

The police have identified the victims as 14-year-old Raymond Givans, a  grade nine student of the Vere Technical High; Ricardo Briscoe, also 14 years old, of Garvey Maceo; and 16-year-old Alex Turner of Central High.

The fourth victim is Marquis Hamilton, a 35-year-old accounts clerk.

All four were found faced down with gunshot wounds to their heads.

The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre spoke with the family of two of the deceased boys.
