Two men were killed and two women were critically injured in a late-night bar shooting on Kempton Road on Thursday evening.
According to Russel Meiring, spokesperson for ER24, all four were in their 30s.
Little information is available about the incident, which took place around 11pm.
“Medics found one man with a gunshot wound to his head, while the other man had a gunshot wound to his chest,” Meiring said, adding that nothing could be done for the victims and they were declared dead on scene.
Of the two female victims, one had a gunshot wound to her abdomen, while the other sustained gunshot wounds to her abdomen and leg.
“Paramedics treated the patients and provided both with advanced life-support interventions. Once treated, the patients were transported to hospital for urgent treatment,” Meiring said.
According to Capt Jethro Mtshali, spokesperson for Kempton Park SAPS, police were summoned to Asaba Bar on Kempton Road just after 11pm, where they found two deceased male victims in pools of blood.
He said it was still unclear how many suspects were involved or what the motive for the shooting was, as nothing had been stolen.
“Two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder are being investigated,” he added.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to contact the police on 08600 10111 or the SMS Crime Line on 32211.
