No arrests yet for Aurora mine shootings

No arrests have yet been made in connection with the Aurora mine shooting but police said on Friday they are investigating four charges of murder.

Four illegal miners were killed in an underground shaft at Auroras Grootvlei Mine on the East Rand two weeks ago.

Former Big Brother contestant Brad Wood – who heads security at the mine – was underground at the time of the shooting with two guards and two mine captains.

Sources have told Eyewitness News that Wood may be personally responsible for the shooting.

The polices Noxolo Kweza however said information is sensitive at this stage.

“The investigation is continuing. We are currently investigating four counts of murder and five attempted murder charges. I cant reveal much. When we are ready to do so we will,” she said.
