CAPE TOWN - The Steenberg Community Policing Forum says the shooting of five people in the area including a five year old boy is gang-related.

Police are investigating the drive-by shooting outside a shop on Friday where the five people, between the ages of 5 and 20 had been standing.

After the shooting, the victims apparently rushed to a nearby house where paramedics were called to the scene.

The youngest victim remains in hospital in serious condition, while the other four are recovering from minor to moderate injuries.

Steenberg CPF chairperson Gavin Walbrugh says this shooting could be linked to another gang-related incident that happened two weeks ago.

“The shooting probably stems from the shooting of a gang leader two weeks ago.”
