Citizen reporter

People standing in court corridors were told to get inside courtrooms as police frantically attempted to calm the situation.

In what appears to be an ongoing feud between rival gangs, two gang members are said to have been apprehended at the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court.

People inside the court are seen being escorted away from what appears to be a volatile situation between gang members. A fight including weapons reportedly broke out on court grounds, resulting in police cordoning off certain parts of the court.
