All three of the persons killed in a Savanna-la-Mar robbery attempt last week were all teenagers.

They are 16-year-olds Shane Nunes and Sakeen Satchwell and 17-year-old, Clive Stone all from Westmoreland addresses.

The three were reportedly shot by the police early Friday morning on Great Georges Street.

According to reports, a security company initially responded to an incident after an alarm went off at a supermarket on Great Georges Street.

Subsequently four cops responded to the incident.

The police say when they arrived on the scene they were greeted with gun fire which they returned.

Three persons were shot and subsequently pronounced dead.

The police say one firearm was taken from the dead men.

INDECOM says firearms of the concerned officers were taken out of circulation and submitted to the Forensic Laboratory for analysis.
