13 football fans watching EPL killed in South Sudan bar shooting

At least 13 people have been killed and 14 others injured after a gunman opened fire on a crowd watching an English Premier League game near the town of Juba, South Sudan during the weekend

The gunman, who appeared drunk, grew angry after being refused free entry to the bar where patrons had paid roughly USD 0.50 each to watch the football match on television, and then started shooting at the football watchers.

As at Saturday, the death toll was 11, but Deputy police spokesman Kwacijwok Dominic Amondoc said on Monday the death toll had increased to 13, as two other people died from injuries sustained.

Amondoc also revealed that others were still being treated in hospital. An injured person, Wani Patrick, recovering from a bullet wound to his hand said:
 “When I was shot I fell down and some youths fell on me. I was unable to stand up until he finished shooting all his bullets,” 
 “Many people were shot, many people died.”

The location of the shooter is still unclear with “investigations underway”, according to deputy government spokesman Paul Akol Kordit.

“It’s very unfortunate and we as a government condemn this in the very strongest terms possible,” said Kordit

Kordit also pledged that the government would “do what we can to protect our people and bring to book such people who are killing innocent lives with no reason at all”.
