A gun-toting enraged man on Saturday night shot dead three people among them a baby and injured five others at a funeral in the south Zambian town of Pemba, local newspaper reported on Monday.


The enraged man went on rampage shooting people at point-blank at the funeral house in the village after some youths accused a local elderly man of causing the death of another villager.
Southern Province assistant Police Commissioner Khshif Mphande said among those killed was a man suspected to have “bewitched the villager who died on Saturday”.
The other victims were a woman who was carrying a child on her back, he added.
The gun man is on the run. A manhunt has been launched. Enditem
