The current spate of taxi drivers being shot in Cape Town has increased; with another driver being shot in what police believe is a taxi-related shooting.

The incident which took place on Friday evening occurred in Main Road, Delft.

According to police, a group of unknown men fired several shots to the taxi, injuring the driver and a passenger.

Police spokesperson Siphokazi Mawisa says “a 25 year old male sustained a gun shot wound to his shoulder while another male, in his late twenties, sustained gun shot wound to his left leg. Both males were taken to a nearby hospital and are in a stable condition”.

She added that “the suspects fled the scene and are still at large”.

Police are investigating a case of attempted murder.

The latest shootings follow after a similar incident in Philippi East on Thursday night, when a man was shot dead and two others wounded.

The motives for all the incidents, as well as whether they were linked, are being investigated.
