Two men killed within a day

2015-07-28 13:57

Two men have been killed in less than 24 hours in Lentegeur.

The Lentegeur police responded to a shooting incident in Sunflower Street on Monday last week after 14:00, says police spokesperson Sergeant Jerome Voegt.

“On the members’ arrival they discovered a 33-year-old man who had sustained a bullet wound to his face.

“It is alleged that the man was approached by four unknown suspects who fatally shot him,” he says.

A day later, on Tuesday morning at 10:40, the police were again called to a scene of a shooting in Begonia Street, says police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Williams.

“Officers found a 26-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his chest.

“It is alleged that the deceased was walking down the road when he was approached by two unknown men who started shooting at him,” he says.

It is unclear if the two murders are linked.

The motives for both shootings are unknown at this stage and no arrests have been made.
