Cape Town - A Khayelitsha man was gunned down as he was walking to work in Bishop Lavis on Thursday morning.
He was 63-year-old Stanley Qhayiya, who worked at a BP garage.
Three men approached Qhayiya and one opened fire, said witnesses on the scene of the shooting at the corner of Sky Road and John Ramsay Avenue.
“It looks as though we are dealing with a case of a robbery gone wrong. It looked as though a scuffle ensued and (Qhayiya) was shot,” said Faisal Abrahams, chairman for the Bishop Lavis Community Policing Forum.
He added that Qhayiya’s phone and his few possession were still on him when police officers arrived.
