CAPE TOWN - At least three people have been killed in a rash of shootings in Ocean View since the weekend.

In the latest incident, a local was shot dead on Tuesday in what's thought to be a gang-related attack.

The Ocean View community policing forum's Kathy Cronje says: “We suspect this is gang related as well. Most of the shootings in Ocean View have been gang related. The fact that the man has been shot similarly to others points to the fact that it’s gang related.”

Hanover Park also saw at least two deadly shootings on Tuesday linked to gangsterism.

When police responded themselves came under attack from community members.
