More gang violence in Hanover Park
Alleged gang violence continues to threaten the lives of the people of Hanover Park on the Cape Flats. A 70-year-old woman sustained a bullet wound to her stomach last night when she was caught in the cross-fire while she was on her way to church. A 19-year-old man was also wounded in the hand when two men allegedly fired shots in Athburg Walk. Police spokesperson Bernadine Steyn says both victims are in a stable condition in hospital. She confirmed that cases of attempted murder are being investigated and says indications are that the shooting can be linked to the ongoing gang war in the area.
