Two charged with attempted murder in PG

Police say that while they have made arrests and charged two men for the shooting that happened prior to the double murder on Monday in Punta Gorda, they have not yet established what motivated that shooting. Two men on bicycles, Adwan Usher and Albert Valentine fired several shots at two persons. The duo was slapped with charges of attempted murder and grievous harm, among others. A.C.P. Joseph Myvett tells us more.
