Four males were killed in a shooting incident in Kuvo Street, Zwide last night around 22:45.
This followed after a 38-year-old female heard a loud quarrel erupting from a neighbouring shack. When she walked over to the shack to ask them to quiet down, several shots were being fired inside the shack. She was wounded in her lower arm in the process and ran for safety.
On police arrival, four male bodies were discovered. Two inside and two outside.
Only the shack owner, 32-year-old Bongani Yoni could be identified. Several empty ammunition cartridges were found in and around the murder scene.
At this stage it is unknown what the reason for the murders or who the suspects are.
Police are urging anybody that could assist with more information to contact the investigating officer of Motherwell Serious Violent Crime Unit, Captain Jerome Mackay at 076 018 0713 or our Crime Stop number 08600 10111
The Motherwell Cluster Commander, Major General Dawie Rabie said "crimes committed using fire arms are a serious concern to the SAPS. We (SAPS) cannot allow these violent crimes and we urge our community to assist police in rooting out these criminals and their firearms".
