3 killed in alleged dispute in Inanda

Three people have been gunned down in the Inanda north area following what police believe was a domestic dispute. 


Officers say three counts of murder are being investigated. 

It is understood the victims had gone to the suspect's home yesterday to fetch linen. 

Police allege an argument then ensued, leading to the shooting. 

Police say the shooting occurred at the home of the suspect in the Mzinyathi area, north of Durban yesterday morning. 

Siphokuhle Molefe, his wife Zandile and Nompumelelo Ndwandwe were killed in the shooting. 

A fourth person managed to escape unharmed. 

Officers say the suspect fled the scene but was later tracked down and arrested. 

A licensed firearm, thought to have been used in the shooting was also recovered.

Police spokesperson Thulani Zwane says it will be sent for ballistics testing to confirm whether it was used in the crime. 

The 45-year-old suspect is due to appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court soon.
