Investigators and senior members of the Manchester Police are now assessing evidence in relation to last night's deadly shooting at a crowded taxi-stand in Mandeville. 

Two people were shot dead and a third injured when a gunman opened fire on them in a taxi park around 7 o'clock.

Head of the Manchester police, Superintendent Melvin Brown, says a case conference is underway at this hour.

No suspects have been named and there are no reports of any being held. 

Last night, Superintendent Brown said it appeared the victims were specifically targeted as part of a gang feud.
