An elderly man and woman are the latest victims of the crime wave gripping Hanover.

Seventy-one-year-old Joel Malcolm, otherwise called Jew Boy, and 63-year-old Hurfa Johnson were shot and killed at their home in Malcolm Heights about 7 o'clock last evening.

Reports are that Malcolm and Johnson were at home watching television when gunmen kicked in the back door to their house.

The gunmen opened fire on Malcolm who had gone to investigate the loud noise.

He was shot multiple times all over his body.

The gunmen proceeded to fire shots into the house which hit Johnson in the shoulder.

Both succumbed to their injuries.

The gunmen then set fire to a nearby two-bedroom dwelling but the occupant managed to escape without injuries.

The police are investigating.
