'Man killed was senior Hard Livings leader'
Douglas Barry was gunned down and it’s feared this could spark revenge attacks.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Deputy Police Commissioner Jeremy Vearey has confirmed a man who was shot dead in Mitchells Plain last week was a senior gang leader.
Douglas Barry was gunned down in Rocklands.
It's feared this could spark revenge attacks as the shooting is thought to be gang-related.
Vearey said Barry was a senior leader of the Hard Livings gang, and he has a long history in the whole culture.
"He's not a member; he was just very senior leader. He goes back to in generation to the 80s, so he's of the Rashied Staggie generation, not that he's old but part of the same initial youngsters who were with Staggie during the start of the Hard Livings."
