    According to residents, three were shot in the head, while another was shot in the chest.

    "This seems like ethnic profiling because all those shot are from one community and we are now scared that things may get worse because there are rumours there could be more bodies," one resident alleged.

    They claimed the deaths were triggered by ethnic clashes in the area.

    Reports indicate that four vehicles have been burned down.
