Police are investigating a firebombing incident in Cocorite on Sunday night in which a 92-year-old man was killed and his elderly wife in her 80s warded in a critical condition.
A 24-year-old man was also killed in the area, however, it is not yet known if both incidents were connected.
According to a police report, around 11.40 pm Akiel Andrews of Waterhole Road, Cocorite was shot dead while behind the steering wheel of a car—a white B13—at Harding Place.
Police said Andrews was shot multiple times and died on the scene.
A few hours later, around 4.45 am on Monday a loud explosion was heard at LP No 7B Harding Place.
Residents saw a house engulfed in flames.
Police and fire officers responded and the flames were quickly extinguished.
However, police found the burnt body of George Graham lying in the yard on the left side of the house.
His wife, Eldena Lewis was also found burnt in the yard.
She was taken to the hospital where she was treated and warded in a critical condition.
Residents told police that Lewis pulled Graham out of the burning house and in doing so suffered burns to her back.
Police are yet to determine a motive for the deadly firebombing incident.
