Police launch manhunt for casino robbers

Gauteng police are hunting for a gang of heavily-armed men who opened fire at the Carnival City Casino in Brakpan on the East Rand early this morning. At least three people have been wounded in the shooting.

Thousands of people were at Carnival City for the Air Supply concert at the time. Two policewomen on patrol in the area happened to spot the armed men. Inside the casino a civilian was shot in the leg, apparently with a 9mm pistol.

Carnival City cannot confirm whether any money was taken.
