Western Cape police have confirmed that a 58-year-old died on arrival at a nearby hospital after he was shot and seriously wounded this morning in London Road, Salt River.

"Information at the disposal of the police indicates that the deceased was sitting in his vehicle when two unknown suspects emerged, fired several shots at him and fled on foot," said police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa.

Police wouldn't confirm that it was indeed Staggie.

Crime scene experts are currently on the scene combing for clues that could assist the murder investigation, police said.

Earlier reports had said that it may have been Staggie's nephew.
