CAPE TOWN - Mitchells Plain residents say they fear for their lives after yet another bloody weekend in the area.
According to an eyewitness, men aboard a slow-moving Quantum minibus suddenly jumped out in Skorpal Street around 8pm on Saturday night and started shooting.
The woman, who does not want her identity revealed as she fears for her safety, says the violence continued, resulting in 11 people being injured in three different streets.
"The Quantum was driving slowly and the guys were walking behind it and then they opened fire. There was another guy, a gangster that no one knew, in the area. But the people on our side retaliated and fought back and that's how 11 people ended up injured."
