Cape Town - Three teenagers, including a minor, accused of opening fire and killing a 2-year-old boy in Atlantis, will apply for bail next month, the Western Cape NPA said on Tuesday.

The trio, one of them aged 17 and the others 18, appeared in the Atlantis Magistrate's Court on Tuesday after their arrest following Saturday's shooting, spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said.

Braydon Graff was killed by a stray bullet outside a block of flats in Robinvale while his mother was holding him. Two people, one of them the child's traumatised mother, were also injured.

All three accused would remain in custody ahead of their bail application on November 1.

The minor is being held at the Outeniqua Place of Safety in George, while his co-accused are at Allandale Prison in Paarl.
