Although a fourth man thought he had been involved in theft and shooting then at Edenvale High School on Thursday, police have still been looking for another suspicion and fled the scene after claiming he was kidnapping a cabin Uber.
SAPS spokesman Captain Kay Makhubele told News24 that the Uber had been sent to catch a pupil when the men were kidnapped.
The Uber driver was forced to drop the men in a location that the police can not disclose as investigations continue, says Makhubele.
He then informed the driver of the incident to Central Central police station after the suspect was dismissed. His statement was taken and the police investigated.
News24 said on Thursday that two people were shot dead and one third were injured in school shooting just before lunch.
Makhubele said on Friday that a fourth man would think he had been arrested on Thursday.
Makhubele said the suspect was held in the Edenvale area, and it is alleged that she has both dropped off a licensed defect – rifle and pistol.
A white VW polo used as a procurement vehicle was also recovered.
"We follow up leading to the arrest of suspects," said Makhubele.
After determining as a parent
News24 said a man who was a parent was part of the gang of men who were trying to give the school on Thursday, says the school's head.
"The suspect came to the gate and said he wanted to bring a child. On arrival, the keys were asked for the secure.
"We put the keys to the secure but there was no money because we never kept money on the property," said the school's headteacher, Dr Larry Harmer, to the media outside the school .
School staff sent a voice note to the Edenvale Community Policing Forum (CPF) who responded officials quickly. Shooting followed.
