The Waterford community in Portmore, St. Catherine remains tense following an attack Sunday at a birthday celebration which left two people dead and a third wounded.
Jason Ivy, 40, and 67-year-old Nicely Johnson, both of Waterford addresses, died after sustaining bullet wounds sometime after 6:00 p.m. at Mystic Way.
A 48-hour curfew has been imposed in the community to prevent reprisals to Sunday's gun attack.
Senior Superintendent Christopher Phillips, head of the St. Catherine South Police, says the lawmen have increased their presence in the area.
"We don't take kindly to these kind of activities in our community because especially the Waterford area has been doing pretty well since of late, and for persons to come and disrupt the peace like that, we're not going to take it very lightly. So you can rest assured that we're going to be doing all that is necessary to bring the perpetrators to justice," he vowed.
It was earlier reported that Ms Johnson may have died from a heart attack.
But the police say she sustained a bullet wound to the side.
The third gunshot victim is being treated at hospital.
