SIX OF THE WORST CRIMES INVOLVING BARS 

The victims of recent shootings at bars throughout the country are undoubtedly relieved that they were not among those targeted. 

The country is still reeling from the recent rash of pub shootings in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. 

There were multiple shootings in bars last month, resulting in nearly 20 deaths over the course of a single weekend. Sixteen people were killed in Soweto, two in Katlehong, and four in Pietermaritzburg, with eight more injured. 

The police have made headway in solving these mysteries. It appears that two of the three incidents in Pietermaritzburg and Katlehong have resulted in arrests. A member of the Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department (EMPD) was found to have been involved in the Katlehong incident. The 24-year-old suspect was detained and charged with multiple counts of murder and attempted murder in connection with the shooting. 

A search was undertaken at the suspect's residence, and a 9mm weapon and ammo were found, according to police spokeswoman Brigadier Brenda Muridili.
