A shooting drama unfolded yesterday evening when a man and his four-old daughter were murdered during a shooting incident in Milnerton, Cape Town. It is believed that the man is the feared Russian underworld figure, Yuri Ulianitski. A five-year old girl was also killed in the incident.

The shooting took place at 10:45 last night after the family left a restaurant and was heading back to their Table Bay home.

Superintendent Billy Jones says that, shots were fired at the family from occupants of another vehicle on the corners of Loxton Road and Marine Drive in Milnerton.

"This 39-year-old man sustained bullet wounds to his chest, stomach and legs while his wife sustained wounds to her side and legs. The couple’s daughter was shot in the head" , says Jones.
They were taken to a local hospital but only the woman survived. She is however in a critical condition.

The motive for the shooting is unclear, but police are investigating all possiblities that the hit was planned. The suspects are still at large. Police will not release the names of the victims as their families have not been notified of their deaths.
