Three-year-old killed after being hit in the head in Eerste Rivier


A three-year-old girl was killed in a shooting incident in Eerste Rivier on Monday evening. It is alleged that three unknown suspects stopped in front of a house in Normandie Street in Heather Park at 20:30 and started shooting randomly. The three-year-old was rushed to hospital. She succumbed to her injuries after being hit in the head.

Police spokesperson, Brigadier Novelwa Potelwa, said that police responded to the incident and started an investigation. Members of the Anti-Gang Unit deployed on the scene followed up on suspicious movement in a nearby house. Information led them to another house in the same street. Upon searching the house they found five firearms including a shot gun. Potelwa added that two teenagers were among the five suspects arrested in the search.

The suspects have been charged with possession of illegal firearms.

In a separate incident, police pounced on a suspected drug dealer in a block of flats in Maitland last night and confiscated a 7.65 pistol whose serial number was filed off. An assortment of drugs comprising crystal meth and heroine were seized. A 35-year-old man was arrested for possession of drugs and a prohibited firearm.

All arrested suspects are expected in court soon.
