Two Arrested in Gugulethu

Cape Town police have made two arrests in connection with a shooting that resulted in the deaths of three men and left another seriously injured in Gugulethu on New Year’s Day.

The suspects, aged 26 and 36, were apprehended in Goodwood and Blue Downs on Wednesday. According to the South African Police Service (SAPS), detectives are now focused on locating a third suspect as the investigation continues.

The shooting took place on Monday afternoon when the victims were in a vehicle, reportedly on their way to drop off a person. Another vehicle with occupants suddenly pulled up and multiple shots were fired.

The victims, three of whom perished at the scene, were rushed to a medical facility where the wounded individual is still receiving treatment.

The arrest of the suspects was made possible by the diligent work of the provincial serious violent crime detectives along with the help of crime intelligence.

The suspects are facing charges of murder and attempted murder and are expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrate’s court on Friday.

The motive for the shooting is still under police investigation as authorities continue their efforts to bring all those involved to justice.
