Investigations are continuing into a double murder which occurred in Morvant on Wednesday night.

The victims have been identified as Makeba Nurse, 43, a mother of one and a man only identified as “Bubbles”.

Police said the couple was at a house at Pelican Extension when gunmen stormed in and shot the two dead.

One of Nurse’s relatives said that they did not know the man who was in Nurse’s company at the time.

Not wanting to comment much, the relative described Nurse as a kind and loving person and a good mother to her three-year-old daughter.

Nurse’s relatives are calling for the killing to stop as the country is faced with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“ The country is going through so much already. People are forced to stay in their homes and we just want all the killing to stop too in this time, “ the relative said.

Officers from the Homicide Bureau of Investigations Region 1 are continuing enquiries.
