Three people, including a pregnant woman, were killed in an apartment on Montgomery Avenue off Carmichael Road this morning, not far from where a double homicide took place earlier this month.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Anthony Ferguson said police made the discovery sometime after six o'clock this morning.The deaths bring the murder count so far for the year to 85. It also marks the seventh homicide recorded so far for the week.
According to Ferguson, the assailants busted in the door of the small apartment, shot both women in the head and shot the man in the back. There were also four young children in the home at the time, said Ferguson, who added that one of the children had a hand injury as a result of this incident. All the children were taken to the hospital.
Neighbors reported hearing gunshots earlier in the morning, but the bodies were not discovered until after dawn, said police at the scene. Ferguson said two of the bodies were found in a bed in one room and another was found lying on the floor of another room. Ferguson said police are also exploring the possibility of a connection between this morning's incident and the July 12 double homicide.
Earlier this week, Serrano Adderley, 30, of Montgomery Avenue, off Cowpen Road, was accused of the shooting deaths of Kevin Forbes, 40, of Miller's Heights and Alwayne Leslie, 28, of Jamaica at a shantytown near the Montgomery Avenue apartment. The pregnant woman was reportedly carrying Adderley's child, according to police close to the investigation who were not authorized to speak about it.
