The acting commander for the Police Area One, Senior Superintendent of Police Dermont Lawrence says investigators are following early leads into Saturday night's murder of four people in Bath, Westmoreland.

Twenty-three-year-old Timothy Bernard, otherwise called 'Tim'; 19-year-old Demario McIntosh; 68-year-old Glendon Nannan; and 54-year-old Carl Banhan, otherwise called 'Calla', were shot dead at a popular cookshop and bar by men riding motorcycles.

SSP Lawrence says the quadruple killing did not happen in one of the areas that had been on the police radar.

However, he says the police will remain visible in the community.

SSP Lawrence also sought to assure the residents that the police intend to find these killers.

Yesterday, residents of Bath struggled to come to grips with quadruple murder in their usually quiet, closely knit community, the night before.

Four men were killed in three separate incidents in St James on the weekend.

In one double murder in Barrett Town, 40-year-old Donovan Ricketts and an unidentified male were shot dead by unknown assailants.
