Murder

Squad of murderers nabbed after shooting dead 14 residents in KZN

A report which was published by the SAfm News on the 26th of January 2022 showed how relentless the law enforcement agents have become when it comes to addressing criminality. Faces of many were made to wear smiles as the members of the South African Police Services managed to trace down dangerous criminals. Law enforcement agents have to be at their level best in the fight against crime.

According to today's report, a total of eight suspects have been arrested in a crackdown which was conducted by the Anti-Gang Unit with the assistance of the Crime Intelligence. The members embarked on an intelligence driven operation which was aimed at addressing a situation which was about to get out of hand.

The suspects got arrested in connection with the mass shootings that recently claimed the lives of 14 people in KwaZulu-Natal. The victims got shot dead in two separate incidents which took place two weeks ago in Richmond in the Midlands and Inanda, north of Durban.

In both incidents, several were left wounded and this made many suspect that the country was under attack. Residents were left terrified but thanks to the cooperation of community members who availed information which the police followed up.

When one hears of some attacks such as these which are launched on community members in this country, you may be made to wonder if the ISIS is warming up in South Africa. The suspects are said to be in police custody and investigations are set to continue.

Four high caliber firearms were confiscated by the members from the suspects. These firearms are set to be taken for a ballistic test to ascertain if they were used in other violent crimes which were reported in this country.

The high number of firearms which are in our communities are being blamed for the high number of shootings.
