Instead of leaving, the gunmen then opened fire.Two suspected gunmen found dead by the police. Witnesses claimed to have seen three suspected gunmen fleeing the premises on Friday morning. Strangely enough, police in pursuit of the suspects have discovered two dead bodies. Could the killers have had a falling out over the loot ?

However, the police have already closed the case, leaving a host of questions unanswered.Police stumped by lack of motive Could there be more to this case than meets the eye ?
