A man was fatally shot at the Eastridge Clinic this morning, Cape Town’s mayco member for security, JP Smith says.

Smith says the man attended the clinic when an unknown person entered the facility and shot him.

“Police are investigating the incident and will hopefully be able to shed more light on the circumstances and motive,” he says.

“The City is shocked and saddened by this brazen attack and we hope that those responsible are brought to book.”

The clinic will be closed until further notice and patients are advised to use services of health care centres in surrounding areas. Sick children will be treated at the Mitchell’s Plain Community Health Care Centre.

Trauma counseling and support will be offered to staff members of the clinic.
