CAPE TOWN - A gangster has pleaded guilty to his involvement in a shooting at Camps Bay restaurant in which two men were wounded.

Chestlyn Adams on Thursday pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder.

The charges emanate from a gang shooting at the drinking spot in April 2017.

Seven other accused are out on bail. Some of them have been linked to a shooting at bar in Cape Town in that same year.

The Hawks Philani Nkwalase said: “He was sentenced to five years imprisonment for each of the counts of murder, five years of imprisonment for the illegal possession of a firearm, as well as five years of imprisonment for conspiracy to commit murder.”

The sentence will run concurrently with an effective 25-year sentence handed down in March for the murder of brain Weinstein in August 2017.
