EASTERN CAPE - Detectives seek information from the community that can lead to the apprehension and arrest of a suspect in a double murder case.

It is alleged that during the early hours of Friday, 28 January 2022, an unknown armed male suspect entered a local tavern in the Newvale locality of Mlungisi. The suspect started firing warning shots into the air, and armed with a sharp instrument in the other hand started to stab a 38-year-old male and then shot him in the upper body. The suspect then also shot the 35-year-old tavern owner in the upper and lower body, and assaulted another two customers in the tavern.  Both shooting victims succumbed due to their injuries, and were certified dead on the scene by Emergency Services personnel.
