Scalurd case postponed
Jaylen Scalurd was hit by a stray bullet while playing outside his Beacon Valley home last week.
CAPE TOWN - The case against the alleged killers of a 10-year-old Mitchells Plain boy has been postponed until next month.
Three men appeared in the Mitchells Plain Magistrates Court earlier today in connection with Jaylen Scalurd's death.
The young boy was hit by a stray bullet while playing with his cousin outside his Beacon Valley home last week.
It is believed the incident was gang-related.
The men appeared nervous during court proceedings and their relatives refused to speak to the media, rushing out of the courtroom immediately after the case was heard.
The matter will resume on 19 August.
At the same time, Scalurd family's say they are preparing to lay him to rest on Wednesday.
His grandmother Verna Scalurd says she doesn't feel anger towards the accused.
"God is our judge so he knows best."
She says the area has been quiet since her grandson's death.
