Three killed, two attempted murders registered in Voorbrug, Delft

Western Cape police are investigating the motive behind the murder of three men, aged between 28 and 36, and the attempted murder of two men whose ages are yet to be determined, in Delft.

Colonel Andrè Traut said the incident occurred on Wednesday evening.

‘’At around 20:25 three unknown gunmen opened fire at the victims at a residence in Eendrag Crescent in Voorburg before fleeing the scene empty handed. While the suspects are being sought, detectives are looking at all possibilities to determine a motive for the attack.’’

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or by using the mobile application My SAPS anonymously.

This is the second mass shooting in Delft, in less than two weeks. Four people aged between 20 and 60 in Delft, were killed in this incident.

Meanwhile, the Western Cape’s Police Oversight & Community Safety MEC, Reagen Allen, says the murder rate in Delft needs to be addressed.

‘’The latest shooting incident is another demonstration of how critical it is to find various and alternative ways of addressing murders in the Delft area. As the Western Cape Government, we have already ensured additional LEAP boots on the ground, with a further 68 officers deployed since 1 July. The area now has 141 LEAP officers, which is a biggest deployment in a single area.’’

Allen called on residents of Delft to report any criminal activities. He reminded the community of its reward system to report the whereabouts of illegal firearms.

‘’Residents are also requested to report the whereabouts of illegal firearms on 021 4660011 and they can earn up to R5 000 should a successful conviction be made.’’

‘’The more we get these illegal firearms out of the hands of criminals, the fewer murders we will have in Delft and in our entire province,’’ added Reagen Allen, Western Cape’s Police Oversight & Community Safety MEC.
