“We fear it might be revenge attacks or even a small Xenophobic-outbreak today,” said the voice report.

People were urged on the Zello-channel to avoid the area and emergency services were advised to report to the police station should they need to go into the area.

Police spokesperson Captain Augustinah Selepe could not immediately comment or confirm the shooting, saying police would soon respond in a news statement.
