Residents in Richmond are concerned for their safety following the spike in drug-related murders in their small town, in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
This comes after the death of eight people who were killed in an alleged drug den on Friday. Seven men and one girl, aged between 15 and 41 years old, were shot dead. Two other people are in hospital.
KZN police spokesperson Brigadier Jay Naicker said the community told the police the house was being used as a drug den and it was suspected that the attack might have been drug-related.
