According to Daily Sun, the group was arrested for possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition, and also firing guns in public. "They will appear in Brixton Magistrate Court soon," Lieutenant Colonel Mavela Masondo told the publication.

DJ Vintos whose real name is Hector Ginimbi Buthelezi was reportedly shot dead in Soweto last week Tuesday, 15 March. Police spokesperson Colonel Dimakatso Sello told News24 that DJ Vintos was gunned down by unknown suspects driving a BMW.  

"According to reports, the victim was shot by unknown suspects driving a BMW X3. The circumstances that led to this shooting are unknown at this stage, and police investigations continue," the publication quoted Colonel.

His friends and colleagues have since taken to social media to react to his passing. Neo Maboya said DJ Vinto was a loving guy who never judged people. She tweeted, "A sad Day for Soweto and the world of the entertainment industry. A loving guy who loved life, he would never judge you. May his soul rest in peace. Condolences to his family and his friends. Hector Vintos Ginimbi Dan Valaza Buthelezi. Lala Ngoxolo #RIPVintos"
In February this year, another popular DJ City Lyts was shot and killed in Soweto. According to TshisaLive, a friend who wanted to remain anonymous revealed that the DJ and his friends were ambushed by a group of four armed men who then shot and killed DJ City Lyts. "A VW polo came and four-armed guys jumped out pointing guns at everyone.

"When they pointed the gun at Citi Lyts one of the friends tried calming the situation, saying 'guys let's not do this, what's going on?' Then shots were fired at Citi, in the stomach. When he fell everyone else ran away. As they were running shots were being fired."

The family spokesperson Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini told Drum that City Lyts passed on at exactly 12:30 AM. He also then told the publication that the family was going to open a case. "They were ambushed and that is ambushed that is the best way to put it. They coupled up; four guys came out of nowhere, stopped them, and shot them in their heads. They fought as much as they can, and the guys shot them. I can’t confirm how many they were in the car yet, but this happened at Dube, Soweto,” he said.
