CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police say no arrests have yet been made in connection with two separate fatal shooting incidents.

In the first incident, a taxi driver and passenger were killed after a group of unknown men shot at them along Concert Boulevard in Retreat on Tuesday.

The passenger, a 26-year-old woman, was returning to work after spending the past five months on maternity leave.

Just hours later, a man was gunned down in Lenteguer, Mitchells Plain.

The police's Frederick van Wyk says, "The circumstances surrounding these incidents are still unknown. The suspects are still at large."

Meanwhile, a Retreat resident says the gang violence in the area is out of control.

"When the schools start then the gangs start again. Kids and innocent people are dying because of these gangsters who are fighting with each other. It's terrible."
