According to Police Spokesperson, Brigadier Motantsi Makhele, after a follow up it emerged that there was a robbery in progress at that tuck shop but suspects had apparently fled to a local tavern.

After arriving at the tavern, the suspects allegedly fired randomly at patrons before fleeing the scene. “Two victims were found and referred to hospital by emergency services, the other seven later came to the police station, also with gunshot wounds. It later emerged that the tenth person was taken to hospital with a private vehicle,” said Makhele.
