Two women among 3 found shot dead in vehicle

Police are on the scene of a suspected murder along the Solomon Hochoy Highway in Ste Madeleine.

According to initial reports, the bodies of two women and one man were discovered in the cabin of a red Nissan Frontier pickup around 7 am. 

The pickup was parked along the shoulder on the southbound access lane of the bridge which crosses over the Cipero River, approximately 500metres away from the C3 Centre.

So far, it is believed the three victims were shot by an attacker/s outside the vehicle as there were bullet holes which appeared to enter through the vehicle's windscreen.

They were all shot in their heads.

The man has been identified as 52-year-old George Junior Peter Contero of Palmiste.

Homicide investigators and crime scene investigators are currently examining and photographing the bodies and searching the area for clues. 

Police have also blocked off one of the lanes along the bridge, causing traffic congestion.
