Fatal shootings at Canelands leave one dead.

A 32-year-old man was fatally injured in a shooting incident at the Canelands Informal Area in Canelands yesterday afternoon.

Members of Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) arrived on the scene shortly after 19:00 and discovered a large crowd gathered around the body of a man who was bleeding excessively from his injuries. Medics examined the individual and confirmed that he showed no signs of life. He sustained five gunshot wounds.

According to a witness, the deceased rented out rooms in the area. He was seen speaking to a man when the two began arguing. The suspect then took out a firearm and shot the victim multiple times. The perpetrators then robbed him of his cash and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The motive for the murder has not been confirmed at this stage.
