Police are investigating a case of murder and seven cases of attempted murder after the teenagers were shot on Sunday at about 3am, in Zwelitsha, Nyanga.
The victims were between the ages of 15 and 17. Police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk said: “They sustained gunshot wounds and were rushed to hospital but one died due to his injuries. The circumstances surrounding the incident are being investigated.”
