The police are now on the ground in Drapers, Portland following two murders between last night and this morning.

The details of the killings were not immediately available.

However, in the first incident, a man was shot on his verandah while in the second, a motorist was shot dead in his vehicle.

This is the third murder in Portland this week.

On Monday, a woman was killed in Hope Bay, allegedly by her boyfriend.

Portland, regarded as the safest parish, has been experiencing a flare-up in crime.

Also this week, two females were held up and robbed by armed thugs while coming from a dance in Spring Bank and on Thursday, there was a break-in at the Port Antonio post office.
