Manenberg was rocked by two separate shootings last Tuesday.

In the first incident, a 23-year-old man was shot in the head as he was getting out of a taxi in The Downs Road at 15:00, says Manenberg police spokesperson Captain Ian Bennett.

“It is alleged an unknown man fired several shots in his direction, hitting him in the head. The suspects fled the scene on foot.”

In the second incident a 35-year-old man was killed after he was shot multiple times in the head and upper chest in Flora Court, a mere 15 minutes after the first incident.

An 18-year-old man was pointed out by the community as the shooter and arrested.
