JOHANNESBURG – A shooting at a tavern in Johannesburg’s Soweto municipality has left 14 people dead and three others in critical condition, police said.

Police are investigating reports that a group of men arrived in a minibus taxi and opened fire on some customers at the bar late Saturday night. Police were on Sunday morning removing the bodies of the deceased and investigating what had led to the mass shooting.

The three seriously injured and one other injured were taken to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

The number of cartridges found at the scene indicated that it was a group of people firing at the cartridges, said Lieutenant General Elias Mawela, Police Commissioner of Gauteng Province.

“The primary research suggests that these people were enjoying themselves here, at a licensed tavern that worked within the correct hours,” Mawela told The Associated Press.

“Suddenly they heard shots, then people tried to run out of the inn. We don’t have full details at this time of what the motive is and why they targeted these people,” he said.

“You can see that a high-caliber firearm was used and the shooting was random. You can tell all those people were struggling to get out of the inn,” Mawela told The Associated Press.

The shooting at the Soweto bar comes two weeks after 21 teenagers were found dead in a tavern in the city of east London. The cause of those deaths has not yet been released by authorities, but officials say the teens were not shot or crushed in a stampede.
