 A 21-year-old man was shot dead while seven others were injured in the Audrey area, at Manenberg, on Saturday night.

Western Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Wesley Twigg, said three men were between the ages of 25 and 31, a 25-year-old woman and three youths between 16 and 18 years of age, were shot and injured.

Police said the incident occurred when the group were socializing in a parking area and the perpetrators, who were in a vehicle, began shooting at them while driving past.

Twigg added that medical services declared one man died upon arrival.

"The 21-year-old victim was declared deceased on the scene by medical personnel while the other victims were taken to a medical facility for medical treatment. The motive for the attack is yet to be established the suspects are yet to be arrested”, he said.

Police said the shooting may be gang related, while cases of murder and attempted murder are being investigated.

This is also the latest incident related to gang-shootings in Manenberg, after three people were killed and three others were injured last week Wednesday.
