MEMBERS of the Humansdorp Police Station arrested four suspects between the ages of 24 and 27 on a charge of attempted murder on October 17.

According to police spokesperson, Captain Gerda Swart, an argument erupted inside a tavern in Mtsila Street, KwaNomzamo, at approximately 02:00. “The security personnel requested the occupants to vacate the premises and they closed the doors,” says Swart.

“Armed suspects fired four shots through the closed door, which struck three occupants inside the tavern.”

Two suspects were arrested on the spot, and another two later the same morning.

The suspects appeared in the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court yesterday on a charge of attempted murder.
