Nyanga police are requesting the public to assist them with information regarding a shooting incident in Brown’s Farm on Wednesday 9 September.

Police spokesperson Capt Ntomboxolo Sitshitshi said three people were gunned down and another three injured while they were in a car in Sheffield Road.

“Six people were shot while in a white Toyota Fortuner that was transporting staff members. It is alleged shots were fired at the vehicle by a number of unknown suspects while at the robots in Sheffield Road,” said Sitshitshi.

She added that three occupants, a driver, his wife and another woman, were killed on the scene. Another three passengers were rushed to hospital.

Sitshitshi said the motive for the killing is unknown and police are investigating a case of murder and attempted murder.

Nyanga Community Policing Forum (CPF) secretary Dumisani Qwebe condemned the incident. He described it as ruthless and called on the law to take its course.

“Browns Farm is becoming a danger zone. The killing of people is now becoming a norm. Every day we hear of stories of people being raped and killed or someone gunned down,” said Qwebe.

He urged people to learn to tolerate each other. “It is clear it was not a carjacking because there is nothing that was taken from the victims. Maybe there was a misunderstanding between them,” he said. Qwebe appealed to anyone who has information to report it.

Anyone who might have information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects can call Nyanga police station at 021 380 3304/6004, 082 469 2470 or Crime Stop at 08600 10111.
