Shootout In South Africa ! 14 were killed
“We were called in the early morning, around 12:30 am (2230 GMT),” said police lieutenant Elias Mawela after the shooting overnight Saturday and Sunday.
Mawela said-“When we arrived on the scene, 12 people were confirmed dead,”, and the rest two were announced to be dead in the hospital. According to the investigation reports that a group of men arrived in a minibus taxi and opened fire on some of the patrons at the bar late Saturday night. Police were on Sunday morning removing the bodies of the deceased and investigating what had led to the mass shooting.
The number of bullets found on the scene indicated it was a group of people who shot at the patrons, said the Gauteng provincial police commissioner.
“The primary investigation suggests that these people were enjoying themselves here, in a licensed tavern operating within the right hours, and all of a sudden they heard some gunshots, that is when people tried to run out of the tavern. We don’t have the full details at the moment of what is the motive, and why they were targeting these people,” Also,
“You can see that a high caliber firearm was used and it was shooting randomly. You can see that every one of those people was struggling to get out of the tavern,” Mawela told The Associated Press.
