Gunmen killed eight people after opening fire on a group of people celebrating a birthday party in a township in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province, police have said.

Two gunmen entered the yard of the house on Sunday evening in Gqeberha, formerly Port Elizabeth, and randomly shot at guests, a police statement said.

The owner of the house was among those killed, while three others were also wounded.

The Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, and the head of police, Fannie Masemola, are expected to lead a delegation to the crime scene on Monday.

No arrests have been made and an investigation has been opened on the attack, local outlets report.
