THREE men were murdered on Sunday night and two women are fighting for their lives in hospital.

On Sunday night, as the five workers employed at Ntunjambili Bottle Store were locking up, three armed men held them up at gunpoint.

The three male employees were forced to open the safe and were then put in a room in the shop.

The robbers then took the two women into the room.

They shot and killed the three men, chasing one who tried to run away.

The two women employees were shot and seriously injured.

The robbers escaped with cash and liquor.

Kranskop Station Commander Colonel Caroline Minnaar said an intensive manhunt is under way to track down the killers.
