East London police spokesman LieutenantColonel Mtati Tana said the motive of the shooting was still unclear. “We can’t speculate about the motive of the shooting but we can confirm that a woman, her two children were shot and killed. A man, who is suspected to have committed the crime, survived and the murder weapon was found on the scene,” said Tana.
