Double killing during heavy downpour

During the heavy downpour last night at Ela Beach, Port Moresby, two men were allegedly shot dead in a carjacking.

Neighbours reported they found a body lying on the driveway after hearing six gun shots.

Loop PNG was at the Pacific International Hospital (PIH) last night when the victim was brought in.

According to the relatives, the victim, Raymond Logie, was a staff at the Department of Personnel Management. He was from West New Britain Province.

There was another unidentified male victim found shot dead at the scene.

Police cannot confirm whether the two deaths are related.

Details are still sketchy about the murder suspects and the motives behind the double killing.

Police investigators are currently looking into the incident.
