Manenberg police are looking for information in their investigation of the murder of a 37-year-old man in Heideveld last week.
The man was killed in a shooting in Betsy Court in the early hours of last Saturday, according to Manenberg police spokesperson Captain Ian Bennett.
“It is alleged that the 37-year-old man and his cousin were standing in Betsy Court.
“Two men approached them and one of them pulled out a firearm and fired a single shot, hitting him in the chest,” says Bennett.
He adds that the victim is allegedly a member of a gang in the area, but that the reason for the shooting is not known.
“A case of murder has been opened for investigation to determine the cause or reason for the shooting after the killers fled the scene on foot. No arrests have been made,” says Bennett.
