Johannesburg - Five men were shot dead and three people were injured at a party in Sankontshe, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Sunday.

Colonel Jay Naicker said the men, between the ages 20 and 28, were attacked whilst they were at the party on Saturday evening.

He said some of the deceased were wanted for a number of murder cases and armed robberies.

Two were facing murder charges and were out on bail.

The three injured people were not associates of the group that was killed.

KwaZulu-Natal transport and community safety MEC Willies Mchunu has condemned the killing.

"We urge people not to take the law into their own hands but instead, to work with the police," he said in a statement.

Mchunu said the case would be investigated by crime intelligence and the Hawks.

Senior officials from the department have been assigned to produce a plan to address criminals operating in the area, Mchunu said.
