Community members in Langa who witnessed the gruesome killing of a young man in broad daylight say they are still shocked at the murder.

According to reports, Zongezile Peter Bukani,27, was leaving a car wash site when two men approached him, took out guns and shot him in full view of horrified onlookers, on Monday afternoon..

The lincident happened in Lerotholi Avenue, next to the LTA.

The family members of the deceased, who were sitting in a bungalow few steps from the scene, were too traumatised to speak to City Vision.

Inspector Odwa Makupula, communication officer at Langa Police Station, said they were investigating a case of murder and that the two suspects were still at large.

The deceased was walking from a car wash on the corner of the street towards the flats when he was approached by one of the suspects.

The victim tried to run back, but the other suspect drew a firearm, which he hid in a container box for a liquor brand, and fired about 15 shot at him.

“This was a gruesome murder.

The suspects wanted to make sure that he is dead. The suspects disguised as they were drinking, because they were also carrying bottles of alcohol.

They then ran away after shooting him,” he said.
