The first incident occurred sometime around 10 p.m. on Friday when a group of men were seen pursuing a man who the police describe as a well-known drug addict, through the Cocorite area.
Neighbours who saw the man being chased, telephoned the police and officers responded but the neither the man nor his attackers were seen.
His body was discovered the next day at 10 am through a track in the area.
A post mortem will only be performed when the man’s relatives positively identify him.
The other murder occurred at Upper Mercer Road, Diego Martin.
According to Police around 11 p.m. on Saturday a group of men were playing cards in an open yard when three gunmen ran in.
All the other card players ran off but the victim, aged 56, known only as “Cow Man,” was shot several times. He died on the spot.
Police said they were unable to arrive at a motive why the middle-aged man was killed as he was not known to be in anything illegal.
Homicide Bureau investigators are continuing enquiries into both incidents.
