Khayelitsha| Gunmen Opened Fire At Guests Attending A Birthday Party - This Is What Happened

A 24-year-old woman has died in hospital and seven other people have been wounded after gunmen opened fire on a house in Mandalay near Khayelitsha. Police spokesperson, Andre Traut, says suspects fired shots from a car at guests attending a birthday party in Montclair Drive. A young life has been taken due to this high crime rate which is not being taken serious. Looking at the the nature of the crime, it seems like a hit.

He says the victims are aged between five and 26. Traut says they've implemented a 72-hour activation plan to arrest the suspects. He says additional police officers have also been deployed to the area. Law enforcement officers should ensure that firearms don't get to the wrong hands, whereas confiscated firearms are destroyed. It's extremely disheartening to see young people die in the hands of perpetrators, those who kill don't deserve to ever set their foot out of prison.
