Five Somalian shopkeepers were arrested after a violent shootout left one man dead and another injured in South Africa

SABC News:

The shootings followed a short argument with two 30-year-old local men at about 7.30pm, Ernest Sigobe, a police spokesperson, said. One of the men was instantly killed and the other, now in Livingstone Hospital, was seriously wounded in the back.

After the shootings, Ikamzelihle residents vandalised the five Somalian-owned spaza-style shops and burnt two to the ground. Ikamzelihle is near Motherwell township.

Sigobe said the five Somalians, aged 30 to 45, were arrested on charges of murder, attempted murder and possession of unlicensed firearms. "They will appear in court soon," said Sigobe.

The residents' action of taking the law into their own hands would also be investigated, he said.
