KwaZulu-Natal police are investigating a mass murder at eMsahweni in Adams outside Durban.
Seven men between the ages of 21 and 36, were allegedly shot dead execution-style.
According to KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Brigadier Jay Naicker, the incident occurred at around 18:00 as neighbours heard gunshots ringing from one of the homesteads in the area.
“When we investigated, we found the bodies of seven men, aged between 21 and 36, in one of the rooms. All seven men had sustained gunshot wounds to the head.
Naicker says it’s still very early in the investigation and at this stage, it is too early to speculate the motive for the attack.
He says investigations are continuing and community members are already coming forward with information.
“Members of the Serious and Violent Crimes Unit’s provincial headquarters attended to the scene. The motive for the killing is still unknown.
