Alexandra police have launched a manhunt for a man believed to be one of the most dangerous in the township.
Isaac Masango, 35, of Alexandra, is wanted for murder, robbery, attempted murder, kidnapping and illegal possession of a firearm.
Constable Neria Malefetse said he was extremely dangerous.
"We urge anyone who spots him to call the police because Masango might be armed," said Malefetse.
She said Masango, who drives a gold VW Golf, is also known as Isaac Nkomo and Bura Masango.
Malefetse said last year Masango and two other men attacked four people, two men and two women, in a shack in Alexandra , demanding to know the where-abouts of a man named "Man J".
One shack dweller was taken outside and gunshots were heard.
"The three men allegedly took away the two women and the other man and left," Malefetse said.
On Second Avenue the man was taken away and gunshots were heard . "One woman tried to run away but was shot dead," she said.
"The suspects then fired at the other woman. She fainted and the men thought she was dead."
