WESTERN CAPE - Detectives attached to the Provincial Serious and Violent Crimes unit are pursuing a number of leads and are working around the clock to get to the bottom of three separate incidents that claimed the life of eight people in total.

Preliminary investigations into the multiple murders in Harare this morning led detectives to believe that two incidents that preceded the one in Ncumu Street could possibly be linked. At around 02:50 an adult male and his adult girlfriend were shot and killed In Feza Street Harare, and shortly after that, a 35 year old male was shot and killed not far from the first scene.

Three hours later, the murders in Ncumu Street were committed, possibly by the same suspects.

The identities of the eight victims cannot be disclosed at this stage.
