CAPE TOWN - No arrests have yet been made in connection with several fatal shooting across Cape Town over the weekend, Western Cape police said on Monday.

A 22-year-old man was shot and killed in Manenberg on Sunday night, while a 24-year-old man was gunned down in Valhalla Park on Saturday.

In a separate incident in Lavender Hill, two men aged 18 and 31 were shot and killed.

The Steenberg Community Policing Forum's Kevin Southgate said two teenagers were also wounded in that shooting.

"The police are still investigating the motive for the killing. There is nothing that links the deceased to gang violence."

In June, a 36-year-old man was shot and killed in Elsies River.

The police's Tembinkosi Kinana said, "It appears that two men shot him. The motive for the killing is unknown at this stage. Police have opened a murder case which is now being investigated. We have not yet identified any suspects. At this stage, we cannot say whether it is gang related or not."

Over 20 people, including two school pupils, have been killed in suspected gang-related shootings in Cape Town over the past two months.
