Two people were killed and one other person were seriously injured following a drive by shooting on Todd Street, Verulam on Sunday 24 March 2019.

At approximately 10:20 the RUSA Operations Centre received multiple calls from the public reporting a volley of shots being fired at a VW Golf 7. Members of Reaction Unit South Africa were dispatched to the scene and upon arrival found the vehicle stationary in the center of the road.

The rear passenger sustained multiple gunshot wounds and died in the vehicle. The driver and front passenger were critically injured and were stabilized by Medics stabilised before being transported to hospital where the driver later died.

Witnesses reported seeing a blue Toyota Corolla and a silver Mercedes Benz driving up to the VW Golf 7. The occupants of both vehicles fired a volley of shots with high caliber rifles at the VW Golf before they sped off. Seventeen spent rifle cartridges were found on scene.

The motive for the shooting is unclear at this stage.
