The Hanover Police say two men have been taken into custody in connection with yesterday's gun attack on a family which left two brothers, including a schoolboy, dead.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Artel Colley, who is in charge of the parish, says the men were taken into custody last night. 

He says they are to be questioned shortly. 

The Hanover Police suspect that the attack early Tuesday morning on the Malcolm Heights family is linked to lottery scamming activities.

DSP Colley says gunmen shot up the four-bedroom house which had 15 occupants.

The dead brothers have been identified as 14-year-old Leon Grant a student of Rhodes Hall High and 20-year-old Travis McKenzie.

Two other relatives were injured in the gun attack.
