Van Stadensrus: A case of business robbery and attempted murder is under investigation following a shooting incident at a tavern in Vanstadensrus on Sunday; the 13 September 2020.
It is alleged that a police vehicle that was passing near a tuck shop was shot at but no one was injured. A follow up was made after it emerged that there was a robbery in progress at that tuck shop but suspects had apparently fled to a local tavern. On arrival at the tavern, 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.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of suspects should please Detective Constable Mosala Mositoane at 079 502 5088 or Crime Stop at 08600 10111, alternatively send information via MySAPSApp.
