    of the two dealers

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) Have you heard of the murder that took place last night of two drug-dealers who were in their forties?

    2) Have you heard of the murder that took place last night, of two drug-dealers who were in their forties?



    In the second one, the last part has been added as an afterthought.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: of the two dealers

    The first sentence is perfectly fine. You don't need the comma in the second sentence. In fact, "two drug dealers who were in their forties" is a noun phrase.
