South African Police Begin Manhunt after Eight People were Killed, during birthday party shooting in Gqeberha, Eastern Cape

Eight people have been killed and four others injured during a mass shooting at a birthday party in Gqeberha city in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province.

Two unidentified gunmen “randomly shot at guests” who were dancing and mingling at a house party in Kwazakhele township, police say.

No arrests have been made but a manhunt is underway.

Those killed and injured have not been identified but police said the owner of the attacked house was among them.

“These victims were killed by criminals, and we will not rest until we find out what happened and who was responsible for [this] callous and cold-blooded attack on these unsuspecting victims,” said Eastern Cape Police Commissioner Nomthetheleli Lillian Mene about Sunday afternoon’s attack.
