According to the police’s Andrè Traut, unknown gunmen entered a barber shop in Gqrwarha Street at around 4p.m, and opened fire at the occupants of the premises.

‘’Two juveniles aged 11 and 12 and an adult aged 30 were killed, while three juveniles aged between 11 and 15 sustained injuries and were admitted to hospital for treatment,’’ said Colonel Andrè Traut.

The police spokesperson said a 5-year-old later succumbed to injuries sustained death.

The suspects fled the scene and are yet to be arrested. The motive for the triple murder, says Traut, are yet to be determined.

Meanwhile, the Western Cape’s Police Oversight & Community Safety MEC, Reagen Allen, condemned the incident.

‘’This murderous incident is horrific and angers me deeply, particularly with a number of young people sensibly murdered and wounded. These heartless criminals have no regard for life. We need to ensure they are swiftly arrested so that a conviction can follow. Life can never be this cheap. The SAPS should employ every ounce of their intelligence.’’
