Four were fatally wounded on the day in question namely:  John Baptiste Mc Farlan alias Epic, Mitchel Cadette, alias Aparchie, Allan Lenny Louisy alias Alcaponeand Myron Dupal.

Police also recovered a .45 pistol from the scene.

A post mortem examination has been scheduled to be performed on the bodies of the five men on Tuesday May 17.
