More police officers have been deployed to Avian Park in Worcester as well as surrounding areas following a flare up of gang violence on Monday.
Two people died in a shooting overnight, while nine homes of alleged gangsters and their families were torched.
This has led to the closing of the R43 road.
Last week two people were killed in separate gang-related shootings in the same area.
Police have been patrolling the area for most of the day.
EWN reporter Natalie Malgas says while Avian park remains quiet at the moment, shootings have flared up in Riverview.
