By Odette Ismail
Western Cape police revealed that a taxi owner was shot dead and four others wounded in a shooting on Friday night at a long-distance taxi-rank in Khayelitsha by a group of men.
Superintendent Billy Jones told Independent Online that three passengers-two men a woman- also got caught in the shooting.
At 8.45pm a group of gunmen made their way to the rank and started shooting while passengers were getting into the taxi.
The other three taxi drivers were in a serious but stable condition after being wounded in their stomachs and legs. The fourth taxi driver who was wounded in his leg was discharged from a hospital on Sunday. The three passengers who were also shot in their legs were also released from hospital.
It is believed that the suspects sped off in a silver Nissan Almera and a charcoal double-cab bakkie.
