'Early morning shots fired in Tembisa'
Police say an operation is being carried out where taxis at all ranks are being searched in Tembisa.
JOHANNESBURG - Residents in Tembisa this morning said shots have been fired again this morning at the Sangweni Taxi Rank where one person was killed and several others wounded earlier this week.
Mother of two, 45-year-old Jabu Mahlangu was killed while three others were seriously wounded on Tuesday.
Another man was also wounded the previous day, at the same place.
A man said shots were fired in the area this morning.
"It's a war zone up here in Tembisa, people are shooting each other. I'm a disabled guy, I can't even walk, I can hardly run so when I see people running I don't know what to do."
However, the police's Mack Mngomezulu said the situation is under control and authorities are still monitoring the area.
"No, there's no shooting. All I can say is that the police are busy with an operation searching taxis at all the taxi ranks."

At the same time, as Mahlangu's family prepares for her funeral, they say her two young children have been left with many questions and are battling to come to terms with what happened.
Mahlangu's sister Sandra said she was killed in an act of senseless violence which has left two young children scrambling for answers.
"They can't understand and they cry a lot."
Mahlangu had taken her children, aged 12 and 18, to her mother's home in Mangweni, Tembisa when she was caught in the crossfire at the taxi rank.
She worked as a librarian at the National Prosecuting Authority.
Her family are planning a funeral this weekend.
Meanwhile, the five suspects arrested in connection with Tuesday's shooting are expected to appear in court today.
