Johannesburg - Three men were shot dead and three others injured in Brakpan, on the East Rand, when they were ambushed by another group of men who began shooting them indiscriminately, Gauteng police said on Sunday.

"Six men were seated at the side of a road next to a plastic recycling company in Brakpan," said Lieutenant Kay Makhubela about the incident which occurred on Saturday night.

"A group of people came up to them and without a word, started shooting."

"The motive is unknown."

Makhubela said no arrests have yet been made and police were appealing to anyone with information about the crime to contact them.
