One person survived the attack in the Nhlungwane area.

"Police responded to reports of a shooting on Mpunzi Road, and upon arrival, two bodies of a man, believed to be in his early 40s, and a 24-year-old woman were found lying on the road with multiple gunshot wounds and were declared dead at the scene,” says KZN SAPS spokesperson Robert Netshiunda. 

“A few meters away from the first crime scene, another body of a man, believed to be 50 years old, was found dead inside his cottage room, also with gunshot wounds. His neighbour was also shot at but survived unharmed."

Netshiunda says it's understood the suspects shot the man and woman and went to a nearby house where they demanded the keys to a minibus taxi.

He says they took the spare keys, and the women who were staying at the property were not harmed. 

"The same suspects are believed to have continued to the cottages down the road, where they shot the third victim and took the original keys before driving off with the minibus taxi. The minibus taxi was found abandoned in the Ntuzuma area."

The attacks come a day after a man and woman were killed in the same area. 

It's not yet clear if the two incidents are related.
