Gang violence claims Delft man
A 50-year-old Delft man has become the lastest victim of gang violence in the Western Cape.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police say a 50-year-old man has been gunned down in a suspected gang-related shooting in Delft. The man was shot in the chest several times on Thursday.
The police's Andre Traut says, "The circumstances surrounding the man's death are being investigated. The suspect fled and has not yet been arrested."
Meanwhile, some Delft residents say they don't want another man, who allegedly shot and killed his wife and three-month-old baby girl, back in their community.
The 38-year-old man handed himself over to police shortly after the incident took place on Wednesday night.
Apparently an argument between the man and his wife ensued and is believed to be the reason behind the shooting.
A Delft resident has told Eyewitness News the man must not be granted bail.
"We are going to march so that he doesn't get bail. If you can kill a baby, you're an animal. You cannot stay around other people."
Since the beginning of this year the Delft community has been plagued by violence against children and residents say they have had enough.
