Yet another child has died after being caught in gang crossfire on the Cape Flats.
In the latest incident, a 15-year-old girl was shot and killed in Lotus River on Friday night.
The young girl was sitting outside a house in the street when shots rang out.
The Police’s Andre Traut said, “The circumstances surrounding a shooting incident last night at around 19:45 in Eland Avenue Lotus River where a 15-year-old female was shot and killed are under investigation by Grassy Park police.
According to reports, the deceased was sitting in front of a house in the street when suspects started shooting randomly. We suspect that she was caught in the crossfire.”
A 24-year-old suspect was subsequently arrested and is due in court on Monday.
This brings the number to seven youths who have been shot over a 24-hour period during three separate attacks.
A seven-year-old girl was shot and wounded in Hillview on Thursday night.
Five teenagers were also shot during a drive-by shooting in Mitchell’s Plain later the same night. Two of the victims died.
