Manenberg: Gang shootings flare up
At least five people have were shot and wounded in the gang-riddled community overnight.
In recent weeks intensive gunfights have been a common occurrence, claiming a number of lives.
The most recent shootings broke out on Wednesday night and continued into the early hours of this morning.
About 150 officers saturated the area where it's believed the Americans and Hard Livings gang are at war.
As a gunshot is heard in the distance, Manenberg police's Ian Bennet says two teenagers were also wounded in the crossfire of another shooting last weekend.
He also says one of their patrols was targeted.
Bennet says residents are too scared to leave their homes.
Meanwhile, police have requested the public's help in tracking down gunmen involved in a deadly shooting in Mitchells Plain on Wednesday.

The police's Frederick van Wyk says, "The motive is unknown at this stage and no one has been arrested as yet. Anyone with information is kindly requested to contact 0827778076."
