Three people aged between 25 and 30 were shot dead in another gang-suspected shooting in KwaZakhele near Gqeberha, Eastern Cape police said. Spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu said the incident happened on Saturday afternoon, after a group of people returned to a house following a burial.
An altercation broke out between the first victim and a person from the group. As the victim started running, he was chased by the group and several shots were fired in his direction. She said Masixole Qwazi, 26, fell to the ground, a few houses away and died.
“It is further alleged that the suspects went back to the house and got into a red hijacked Aveo and went in search of the other two victims. The second victim, Sabata Bukani, 25, was fatally wounded in Maronga Street. He sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
The third victim, Thandoxolo Williams, 30, was gunned down in Daku Road. He also sustained multiple gunshot wounds. All three crime scenes are in close proximity,” she said. The hijacked red Aveo was later found abandoned in Johnson Road in Soweto-On-Sea.
“The motive for the killings is suspected to be gang related. While police have implemented the 72-hour activation plan, they are also appealing to anyone who may have any information on the whereabouts of these suspects to contact them.
