Yesterday afternoon they were identified as 23 year old Edi Farrell of Lemon Drive, Champs Fleurs and 26year old Anthony Lallaof Upper Quarry Drive, Champs Fleurs.
According to police, the pair was “laying low” in the one-room apartment of a friend.
Reports state that around 3 a.m., neighbours were awakened by gunfire.
When the building’s landlord who lives upstairs went to investigate the source of the noise, it appeared that the killers had broken down a door leading to a downstairs apartment, found their targets asleep on a pair of bunk beds and murdered them in their sleep.
The landlord found the two young men who were unknown to him, seeming to be dead of gunshot wounds to the head, and lying on the bunks of a double decker bed.
The police were contacted and, on arriving, confirmed the deaths.
There are reports that two other persons were in the apartment at the time of the shooting, but their whereabouts are now unknown.
Two persons were being questioned yesterday, but the police hope that the two men from the apartment will also come forward with information.
The killings are believed to be drug related.
