Umlazi residents react to mass shooting

DURBAN – Community members in Umlazi went on the rampage on Sunday following a mass shooting that left four people dead and eight more injured.

A crowd gathered at the house where a family was attacked by armed men on Friday after they had attacked a local tavern. A mother and her three children were among the dead and a woman was raped.

Members of the community said they were tired of “drug dealers and violence in the area”.

The local police arrived to disperse the crowd of angry residents who were unhappy about the police’s presence.
