Cape Town - A 10-year-old boy was killed and his father and another man were wounded in a shooting in a house in Parkwood, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.

The boy was shot in the back, his father in the arm, and the other man in the arm and buttocks, in the Blackbird Avenue house around 21:00 on Tuesday night, Captain FC van Wyk said.

Neighbours took them to Victoria Hospital, where the boy died from his injuries.

A 24-year-old man was arrested shortly afterwards, and an 18-year-old man was picked up early on Wednesday morning.

They would appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Friday on charges of murder and attempted murder.
