News24 understands he was shot four times after apparently being chased into the airport. He was taken to hospital. 

Police confirmed the two people were wounded but did not reveal their identities. One was a bystander. 

"The 50-year-old man was at the drop and go section of the airport when occupants in an unknown sedan opened fire on him and fled," police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said. 

"During the shooting another man, approximately 30 years of age, was struck by a stray bullet.

"Both victims were treated at the scene and removed to hospital. The condition of the victims is unknown at this stage."

It is alleged a BMW X5 and a white vehicle were involved in the incident.

A call to Booysen's cellphone by News24 on Wednesday morning went unanswered.

Booysen was the target of a shooting in September in Bellville South. He was not wounded.
