They said on arrival they discovered the bodies of Woman police Officer Raquel Kipps and Police Constable Michael Youksee on the floor in a bedroom with “appeared to be gunshot wounds to their heads”.

They said that while the police woman died at the scene, her male relative was taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex where he succumbed to his injuries.
