Cape Town (South Africa) - On Tuesday afternoon, a young Cape Town mother was hailed a hero after she died while protecting her two young children from gang bullets.

Shameema Doherty, 26, made the greatest sacrifice, according to her heartbroken parents, by shielding her seven-year-old son and four-year-old daughter as heartless gangsters opened fire near their Lavender Hill house.

Shameema and her two children had just returned home and were heading towards the front gate when the shooting began, according to her distraught mother, Gaironesa.

“At the time, I was staying with my sister. My husband Adiel arrived home shortly before 5 p.m. with Shameema and her two children after taking them for a drive.

“They were walking into the house when the shooting began, and Shameema ran to get them inside as quickly as she could, and that is when she was shot,” Gaironesa explained.

After the men fired more than 19 shots indiscriminately in the street, Shameema collapsed in the street and blood flowed on a sandy patch, traumatized neighbors claim they watched in horror as Shameema collapsed in the street and blood flowed on a sandy patch.

As she collapsed, her father rushed to her aid and rushed her to Retreat Day Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead after being hit in the abdomen.

“Muizenberg police are investigating a murder case after a 26-year-old female was shot and wounded and taken to a local medical facility where she later died due to her injuries,” said police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk.

“At this time, no arrests have been made.” On Wednesday, residents gathered at Shameema's family home to express their condolences to her parents.

They characterized her as a caring mother and expressed their dissatisfaction with gang violence.

"Shameema was a happy person who enjoyed making jokes," Gaironesa said.

“She was a wonderful mother who sacrificed everything for her children, and we are devastated that she had to pass away in this manner. Her father and children have been traumatized.

“We're waiting to hear when her body will be released from the mortuary. [Today] is the day we want to bury her.”
