Cape Town – One person has reportedly been killed and several injured during a shooting at Cape Town International Airport.

ENCA reported that the shooting happened at a restaurant inside the airport on Wednesday evening.

According to reports a man shot a woman before turning the gun on himself.

A News24 user, William Scott, who was at the airport at the time said: “The shooter jumped over the Ocean Basket sushi bar and chased one of the ladies working at the back. She ran though the side door, just past where I was sitting, and the man following behind her pulled out his pistol. He stopped her right in front of the Ocean Basket entrance when he then shot her and followed to shoot himself in the head. Before I left the lady who was shot was still alive and was being helped by some older man.”

Kathryn Swain tweeted: "A man went into Ocean Basket at the CT airport (husband/bf) and shot his gf/wife who was working there then shot himself in the head."
