Police said the boys, Semion Daniel, 15, and Antony Francois, 16, were liming with other teenagers at an abandoned house in Desperlie Crescent at around 7.30 pm when two men dressed in police uniforms walked up to them and shot at the group.

Daniel and Francois died instantly.

Police said a 13-year-old boy was hit in the left arm and a 15-year-old boy was grazed by a shot.

Another boy who escaped from the home with Daniel and Francois was also among the group. He was detained by police.
