Police arrest suspect who killed eighteen-year-old in Mitchells Plain
A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Mitchells Plain teenager.
Wakeel Dreyer was killed hours before he received his matric results on Thursday after several gunshots were fired at Beacon Hill High School pupil outside a tuck shop in the suburb.
Mitchells Plain Police have confirmed that the suspect is expected to appear in the Mitchells Plain Magistrate's Court Monday.
Ricky Daniel, whose son is friends with the slain teenager, said that while he was nervous, Wakeel looked forward to receiving his matric results. He was also planning to work this year so that he could help his family.
The motive for Wakeel's murder, however, remains unknown.
