CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police say they will continue to deploy additional resources to gang-stricken Hanover Park.

Two people have died and five others wounded in suspected gang-related shootings this week.

A man is expected to appear in court on Monday in connection with one fatal shooting.

Law enforcement agencies raided some homes in anti-crime blitz last night.

The police's Andre Traut said, "We arrested a 23-year-old male for the illegal possession of a firearm and one round of ammunition last night. The suspect is due to make a court appearance on Monday."
