A manhunt has been lunched by the police in Milnerton for six suspects in Cape Town.

In a statement released on Friday, provincial spokesperson Novela Potelwa said officers attached to the Milnerton SAPS are searching for the shooters after five people were shot and killed in Joe Slovo in Milnerton on Thursday evening.

Potelwa said reports from two scenes indicated the six suspects arrived at a house in Sekowa Street after 10pm looking for an individual they only identified by name.

She further said One of the six gunmen then shot a woman, whose age is yet to be determined, in the head. She died instantly. Another woman who was with the victim was also struck in the head and sustained an injury.

Potelwa added that the shooters left the scene and minutes later arrived at a residence in Dada Street, where they allegedly shot and killed three men and a woman.

She said the victims are aged between 28 and 36. “The detectives are hard at work in an effort to apprehend the suspects as well as determine the motive for the murders”.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the suspects or any leads that could help with the investigation is urged to contact Warrant Officer Kussel on 074 964 3197 or contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

All information will be handled in the strictest confidence.
