Police and emergency workers are at the scene of a shooting in Montclair, south of Durban, where five people have died.

Lt-Col Thulani Zwane told TimesLIVE that paramedics and police were called to the house where a Durban magistrate lives with her court interpreter husband and three children.

"Five people are dead - a husband, wife and three children," said Zwane. "We are unable to confirm their ages at this stage. 

"A firearm was found on the scene, but we are not sure who is the owner."

This is a developing story.
