Police are on the hunt for a 31-year-old Mahikeng man wanted in connection with the murder of a 20-year-old woman and her 52-year-old mother.

It is believed that the man shot his 20-year-old girlfriend and her mother dead and wounded their two-year-old son, and his girlfriend's brother in Lonely Park at about 09:00 on Tuesday, North West police have said.

"At this stage, we do not know what caused the guy to shoot these people," Lieutenant Colonel Amanda Funani said.
