Man killed in drive-by shooting in Cape Town
A man was gunned down in an apparent hit in Mitchells Plain on Thursday afternoon.
People at the scene said a white vehicle drove past and they heard gunshots. The victim was hit in the face and body, reported Netwerk24.
Police spokesperson Brig Novela Potelwa told TimesLIVE that the victim – whom police have not yet identified – was a 32-year-old male. She said a teenager, aged 16, was also wounded.
The incident happened at about 3:30pm on the corner of Silversands Street and De Duin Avenue in Westridge.
“The 16-year-old was taken to hospital by ambulance,” said Potelwa.
“They were standing on a corner when a vehicle with occupants drove towards them and shots were fired.
“Crime scene experts are combing the scene for clues. Additional resources from Mitchells Plain and the Anti-Gang Unit have been deployed in the area,” she added.
Netwerk24 said the shooting may have stemmed from a fallout between the Hard Livings and the 28s gang.
