    Two women and four men shot in Duinefontein Road, Manenberg

    Six people were allegedly shot and wounded in Manenberg, Cape Town early on Monday, 23 May. The police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.


    South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said the shooting happened at approximately 6:15 along Duinefontein Road, Manenberg.

    The suspect allegedly opened fire on two women – aged 50 and 52 – and four men – aged between 35 and 58 – before fleeing the scene on foot.

    “Cases of attempted murder have been opened for investigation,” said van Wyk. The unknown suspect remains at large.

    The six victims were transported to nearby hospitals for medical treatment.

    “Anyone with information regarding this incident is kindly requested to contact Manenberg SAPS 021-699-9400 or Crime Stop on 08600-10111,” said the police spokesperson.

    In an unrelated incident, members of the Maitland Flying Squad arrested a 25-year-old suspect for possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition in Manenberg on Monday.

    Police spokesperson Ndakhe Gwala said members spotted a suspicious man on the corners of Plate and Renoster Road and he took off running.

    The suspect allegedly pointed a firearm at the police officers in pursuit and they responded by firing shots. The suspect was wounded and a 9mm pistol with ammunition was found in his possession.

    “The 25-year-old man was arrested, detained and transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment under police guard,” said Gwala.

    The suspect is expected to appear before the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on the mentioned charges in due course.
