One of the two men killed in Portland early this morning is a Jamaican who resided in The Netherlands.

He is 43-year-old Asan Anderson.

The other man has been identified as 48-year-old Leroy McCoy of a Buff Bay address.

Residents say Anderson and other family members, including his wife, had just returned from a wake when masked men invaded their home.

According to residents, he was overheard pleading for his life before being shot several times in the head and chest.

Police investigators theorise that McCoy was shot and killed inside his car as the men made their escape.

Member of Parliament for the area Dr Lynvale Bloomfield called the incident frightening and predicted that it would destroy the peace enjoyed by residents.
