Cape Town - Two men accused of killing Cape Town schoolboy Enrico Martin appeared in the Athlone Magistrate's Court on Monday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Wilston Stoffels, 18, and Jevon Snyman, 19, would return to court next Monday after bail information had been gathered, said NPA regional spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila.

Martin, 18, was shot on Wednesday morning when entering the Spes Bona High School premises in Athlone.

Police spokesman Captain Frederick van Wyk said at the time that three men - two of them armed - dressed in school tracksuit tops approached Martin.

One of them shot him in the head.

Education MEC Donald Grant said paramedics revived Martin and took him to Groote Schuur Hospital, but he died soon after arrival.

Snyman was arrested a day after the shooting in Athlone. Stoffels was arrested in Bonteheuwel on Friday.
