Yet another shooting has occurred in Cape Town's Facreton area, in spite of protest marches by residents to demand an end to the violence.

"One male was left wounded in Albacore street and subsequently rushed to hospital for medical assistance.

"The Kensington Community Police Forum urges all residents to remain vigilant during these trying times and report all suspicious activity to [the SA Police Service]."

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut said an attempted murder case was registered after the victim was shot and wounded at around 11:00.
