The wealthy British territory of the Cayman Islands has been shaken by a spate of rare, deadly shootings blamed on drug gang rivalries.
Governor Duncan Taylor says the murders of three young men in the West Bay community of Grand Cayman over the last five days are "shocking and intolerable."
The islands' police department has increased the number of uniformed and armed police officers in the community.
Top law enforcers were meeting Monday to discuss other ways of responding to the uptick in crime. Duncan says officials are exploring "every possible way, within the law" to tackle the violence.
The tiny offshore tax haven is located about 150 miles (240 kilometers) south of Cuba.
