CAPE TOWN - Police are yet to make arrests in connection with the murder of an 11-year-old boy in Kensington.

Ruben September was shot dead near his home in the Kukutown Informal Settlement on Wednesday night.

Residents discovered his body the following morning.

It's understood the grade 4 pupil was struck in the head by a gangster's stray bullet.

The Kensington Community Policing Forum has since reiterated a call for adequate policing.

It says the shooting highlights the dire need for additional resources at the Kensington police station.

Residents last week marched to the station where they handed over a memorandum calling for more police visibility amid a spike in gang violence this month.

A memorial service is scheduled to take place near September's home next week.
