Gauteng police believe a gang may be responsible for the killing of eight gay men, according to a report.

Police told the Star newspaper it identified a common suspect in four cases, and believed a gang was responsible for the serial gay murders.

Major-General Norman Taioe, head of Gauteng's police detective branch, said a team of detectives was assessing all eight cases in search of other suspects.

The gang's members apparently gained the trust of their victims. Once invited to their homes, they killed and robbed them. Three men were arrested at the weekend for involvement in the murder of Barney van Heerden, a year after his death.

The trio appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
