Some of the EMPD vehicles outside the squatter camp.

A metro police raid at Glen Marikana Informal Settlement on Dann Road this morning turned volatile as residents starting throwing objects at officers who were confiscating liquor.

Shots were then being fired.

According to Express’ reporter on the scene, the EMPD moved in to shut down illegally operating shebeens in the squatter camp, confiscating alcohol in the process.

At one of the shacks residents refused officers to enter and turned to throwing objects at them.

Further information will follow as it becomes available. Express is still on the scene.
