Two suspects were arrested on Tuesday in connection with the fatal shooting of four people, including a teenage girl and her police officer uncle, on Monday at Block P, Jukulyn, a notorious area in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria.

The suspects, aged 30 and 33, are expected to appear in court on Thursday on charges of murder.

The shooting happened in the early hours on Monday when three gunmen with heavy calibre weapons leapt out of two cars.

According to an internal police report seen by SowetanLIVE’s sister publication TimesLIVE, officers found 19 9mm cartridges and 80 rifle cartridges at the scene.

Police spokesperson Col Dimakatso Nevhuhulwi said the circumstances that led to the shootings are unknown.
