The response by the Anti Gang Unit to a shooting incident which left a 13 year old boy fatally wounded in Kraaifontein on the night of 2 February 2019, led to the arrest of two suspects for a murder which was committed earlier on the same day.

At around 20:37 the young victim was shot and killed in Laboheme Street, Scottsdene under circumstances which are currently still being investigated. AGU members were deployed in the area in search of the suspects and to investigate the circumstances. These investigations led to the arrests of two suspects aged 24 and 35 in connection with a murder of a 32 year old man who was shot in Park Avenue, Scottsdene at around 05:30.

Further investigation also resulted in the discovery of a 9mm pistol and ammunition which was reported stolen in Montclair in 2015. The firearm was found in the possession of the 35 year old suspect.

Investigations led police to a third suspect aged 32 who was also arrested in connection with the murder in Park Avenue in Scottsdene.

Once charged, the suspects are expected to make court appearances in Blue Downs.
