JOHANNESBURG - A man has been killed in Reiger Park on Wednesday afternoon in what appears to be a gang-related hit.

Wednesday's incident is the latest in a string of shootings in the East Rand neighbourhood.

Eyewitness News understands the man killed is Desmond Tombeen, allegedly a member of the Dougans gang, who are infamous for their drug dealing in the area.

The man was featured on a recent list of drug dealers sent out by concerned parents trying to fight drug abuse in the community.
