Numerous spent bullet cartridges, blood trickling down the road and a shocked crowd of onlookers painted a grim picture where three people were gunned down in broad daylight outside a popular bus depot in the usually quiet neighbourhood of Perridgevale in Gqeberha at the weekend.

While police are still investigating the motive of the drive-by shooting, police spokesperson Col Priscilla Naidu said on Monday it had definitely been a targeted hit on a man and woman from Timothy Valley moments before they bought bus tickets to Gauteng.

An innocent bystander died from multiple gunshot wounds when he was caught in the gunfire.
