Western Cape police are investigating a triple murder and an attempted murder, after a shooting in Ravensmead on Friday night. Three of the victims were teenagers.
Detectives from the province’s Anti-Gang Unit have been assigned to the case, confirmed police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa.
“Reports from the scene indicate that at 21:00 on Friday evening, Ravensmead police were called to a house in Eureka Estate. Upon arrival in Fabriek Street, the bodies of two 16-year-old youths and a 45-year-old man were lying outside the house,” Potelwa said.
It is believed that a white vehicle pulled up in front of the house and and that the suspects opened fire, she said.
A fourth person, aged 18, was injured in the shooting. The victim had already been taken to a medical facility for treatment when police arrived, Potelwa added.
