The atmosphere got tense today in the Harare CBD when shots were fired at Civilians, in an alleged quarrel between the police and vendors.
However, the usual victims are innocent passers-by carrying out their business in town.
One witness of the incident had this to say.

The witness explained that the police got into a quarrel with vendors who were selling their products in the CBD as they were resisting arrest. This resulted in the police firing shots at the crowd, and innocent pedestrians got caught in the cross fire. However, no deaths have been recorded, only injuries.
