THE SAPS has warned that the firing of firearms in public places is illegal and those caught doing so will face the full wrath of the law.

Last Saturday in Gamalakhe a 50-year-old man was accidentally shot at a funeral. It is alleged that some people fired shots into the air in honour and as a salute to the dead person.

Police spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka confirmed the growing trend is illegal.

Mfeka said a case of attempted murder has been opened and police are investigating.
