“The suspect jumped onto the stage while a band was performing. He then grabbed a microphone and claimed that he would stop the band unless he got back his stolen cellphone,” said police spokesperson Colonel Lungelo Dlamini in a statement.

“When the audience tried to intervene, he fired shots randomly and eight people were shot.”
