A 35-year-old man was shot and killed on Monday last week just after 15:00.

Manenberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett says the victim was selling fruit and vegetables on the corner of Klipfontein Road and Jakes Gerwel Drive.

“A blue Opel Cub pulled up on the side of the road. Three coloured males got out and without any warning fired several shots at the victim, hitting him four times in the chest,” Bennett says.

He was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

The suspects then fled the scene in the car.

A case of murder has been opened for investigation. No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact the Manenberg police on 021 699 9400 or CrimeStop on 08600 10111
