While detectives are probing the death of three people who were shot and killed in a minibus taxi this afternoon in Mew Way in Harare, additional uniformed officers have been deployed to bring stability to a volatile situation in the area. At around 15:00 occupants of a minibus taxi opened fire at the occupants of another taxi.
Two males aged 32 and 25 and one female aged 22 sustained fatal gunshot wounds while a 29-year-old female and a five months old baby were wounded and admitted to a local medical facility. We have reason to believe that another child who was a bystander was also wounded and taken away for treatment.
The suspects fled the scene and are yet to be arrested. Any person who can shed light on this ruthless attack on commuters is kindly requested to contact Crime Stop on 0860010111.
