JOHANNESBURG - Boksburg police have urged Reiger Park community members on the East Rand to come forward with information about the shooting of a 15-year-old girl.

The teenager was shot in the neck, side and stomach in her home on Thursday night in what is believed to be a gang-related shooting.

She is currently recovering in hospital.

Violence between rival gangs, Sour Boyz and The Terribles, has surged in recent months.

It is believed the incident is in retaliation for the shooting of an 18-year old man shot last week.

Police are urging the community to come forward with any information.
