LISTEN: Alleged Xenophobic-attack and shooting in Centurion

Six people are said to have been killed and 12 wounded in an apparent shooting in Centurion in the early hours of Saturday.

A message on Zello (a walkie-talkie app used for private and public communication) said this happened in Olievenhoutbosch.

“Unconfirmed reports is that 18 people were shot of which six were killed,” an unnamed source reported on the Zello-channel.

“We fear it might be revenge attacks or even a small Xenophobic-outbreak today,” said the voice report.

People were urged on the Zello-channel to avoid the area and emergency services were advised to report to the police station should they need to go into the area.

Police spokesperson Captain Augustinah Selepe could not immediately comment or confirm the shooting, saying police would soon respond in a news statement.
