On Monday morning in May Pen, 19-year-old Romario Hylton, also known as ‘Rick’, and his partner, 17-year-old Georgia Boreland, also known as ‘Shan Shan’, were similarly gunned down by men who visited their home.
Miss Boreland was reportedly seven months pregnant.
The latter incident took place at Sevens Road in Farm, May Pen.
Reports were that about 11:30, a group of men went to the house where the teenage couple were, and opened fire, killing them both.
The police, who were alerted, found them with bullet wounds.
