Monaco Tavern in Mamelodi


The police in Gauteng are investigating yet another shooting at a tavern.

Three armed men wearing balaclavas stormed the Monaco Tavern in Mamelodi in Pretoria in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The police's Dimakatso Sello said the suspects found a group of people sitting and started firing shots in the air before approaching a 33-year-old man and shooting him twice.
