The island of Providenciales has plunged deeper into shock following another double murder in the community of Glass Shack on Friday night.
Information surrounding pair of murders is still being pieced together by investigators, by the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force's Serious Crime Unit.
According to preliminary reports, at approximately 8:55 pm, a call was made to the Police Control Room, alerting authorities to the sound of gunshots in Glass Shack. Responding promptly, law enforcement and medical personnel were dispatched to the reported location.
Upon reaching the scene, officers discovered the lifeless bodies of two males, both exhibiting apparent gunshot wounds. Additionally, a male and a female, who were in close proximity to the incident, sustained injuries and were swiftly transported to hospital.
The police said investigation is ongoing, and authorities are actively seeking information from the public. The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force urges citizens to share any videos or information related to the incident with the detectives at the Serious Crime Unit, located on South Dock Road, Providenciales.
On Thursday night about minutes past 9p.m., gunmen attacked patrons at a popular eating and hangout spot along the Leeward Highway, where they opened for killing two persons on the spot and injuring others.
It is no clear the cause of the sudden upsurge in gun crimes on Providenciales, as there has been somewhat of a lull in serious crimes in recent weeks.
The police said that they can be reached at 231-1842, or individuals can call 911 for immediate assistance. Those wishing to provide information anonymously can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-8477.
