Our mission to fight against endemic gang violence and to remove unlicensed firearms and ammunition continues to yield positive outcomes when members of the Anti Gang Unit arrested eight suspects between the age 16 and 42 on the night of 16 July 2019, in Manenberg at about 22:30 on charges of attempted murder, murder and possession of unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
The vigilant members acted upon the information about the shootings that occurred in the area over the past few days where a female victim was shot and fatally wounded due to a stray bullet and three boys aged between 10 and 16 were wounded during the rivalry between gangs.
The members conducted a further investigation and went to the premises at Gamtoos Street and they arrested two suspects who were found in possession of a 9mm pistol with a magazine and it is alleged that firearm was used during the shootings that occurred in the area.
All suspects were arrested and they are expected to make a court appearance once charged on mentioned charges.
