Four people have been killed in the Pietermaritzburg CBD in the last week.

Some murders that took place in the Pietermaritzburg CBD are related to the use of alcohol while others are hits.

This is according to Safe City, in response to questions about the alarming amount of murders in the CBD recently. Four people have been gunned down in the city centre since Wednesday.

On Friday morning three people were shot dead in the CBD. This follows the hit-style shooting of another man on Wednesday.
