According to CgtnAfrica, On Saturday night, gunmen broke into a tuck shop in Savannah Park in Mariannhill, KwaZulu-Natal, and opened fire, leaving at least seven people dead.

Local sources state that the shooters appeared out of the shadows and started shooting randomly at a crowd of people who were gathered close to the tuck shop.

The South African Police Service reported that the victims ranged in age from 30 to 65.

The tuck shop owner, his two sons, and one of the deceased who was waiting at the tuck shop to see a traditional healer may have been the real target of the hit, according to preliminary investigations, which were released by SAPS.

In South Africa, there have been more reported instances of gun attacks in recent weeks, which has caused widespread outrage.

The most recent shooting follows a string of shootings that killed more than 30 people this month.

At least 16 people were slain by shooters on July 10 at a pub in Soweto; the government strongly condemned the tragedy.

KwaZulu-Natal police commander Lieutenant General Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi promised to “do everything” to catch the perpetrators of Saturday’s attack.
