Cape Town - A 37-year-old-man from Manenberg was shot dead outside a Cape Town private school on Monday afternoon in full view of pupils and parents, the Cape Times newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Rashied Moses, 37, was shot in the face and neck at St George’s Grammar School in Mowbray as children walked through the school gates to meet their parents. He died at the scene.

Headmaster Julian Cameron said the shooting took place about 500 metres from the school.

“The school was out already," he told the Cape Times.

"There were a small number of learners, staff members and parents who came to fetch their children who witnessed the incident. Fortunately none of them were hurt. We have put in place steps to ensure that the children who witnessed the incident go through trauma counselling."

Witnesses said a scuffle broke out between two men and a woman, which led to the fatal shooting.

Police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk said a 37-year-old man was arrested at the scene after he allegedly shot at his ex-wife's fiancé in an altercation. Van Wyk said the cause of the fight was being investigated.
