CAPE TOWN - Two more suspects have been arrested in connection with a shooting in Mitchells Plain in which four Pakistani nationals were killed.

The gunmen entered a Rocklands home last week and then gunned down several people.

The motive behind the shooting is unclear but it has been speculated the incident may have been a hit over a business rivalry.

One of the armed men was arrested hours after the shooting.

Leano Jansen (28) faces four charges of murder, two of attempted murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

The National Prosecuting Authority's Eric Ntabazalila said: "The case has been postponed to 10 April for an identity parade as well as further investigation. The police are still busy looking for a second suspect, who was with his man in the car, but he ran away when they were stopped by the police."

The other two men were nabbed over the weekend.

The police's Tembinkosi Kinana said the suspects will face charges "ranging from murder, attempted murder and house robbery."

Meanwhile, Community Safety MEC Dan Plato has condemned the killing, saying it paints the country in a bad light.

Note: Previously police reported that five people had been killed, but they have since changed this and confirmed that four people were killed.
