Johannesburg - Four men who were allegedly involved in a shooting at a tavern in Finetown, south of Johannesburg, that left four people dead will appear in the Vereeniging Magistrate's Court on Monday. 

Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said three men were arrested in Ennerdale on Saturday, while the fourth was arrested later in the day.

Dlamini said on Saturday that local residents "played a big role" in helping police to catch the men.

The group allegedly went into the tavern on Friday night and randomly fired shots with an assault rifle, before fleeing the scene.

The deceased were Siphosakhe Dlamini, Xolani Fiva, Lemewane  Mokhele and Vusi Mokhele. Their ages have not been confirmed yet.

Four other unidentified victims have been hospitalised.
