Two people have been shot and killed and seven others wounded in another tavern attack, this time in Garankuwa, in Tshwane.
Gauteng police say the gunmen driving a silver polo vehicle randomly opened fire at patrons who were sitting outside the outlet on Friday night.
The police’s Dimakatso Sello says the attackers have not been caught.
“The motive of the shooting is unknown at this stage and police will be investigating two cases of murder and seven of attempted murder. Anyone who may have information about the incident or the suspects is urged to report at the nearest police station.”
There’s been a spate of deadly shootings at taverns reported in many parts of the country recently.
On 9 July 2022, a mass shooting took place at a tavern in Orlando, Soweto, Gauteng, South Africa. At least 16 people were killed in the incident.
At about 21:00 GMT, a group of men armed with rifles and a 9mm pistol opened fire on patrons in the tavern. A total of 23 people were shot.
