Cape Town - Police are investigating the murder of a 42-year-old Khayelitsha woman who was gunned down in her home.

The mother of four was shot dead in front of her children on Thursday.

At around 10am, while the woman was taking a bath in her home in Mzali Crescent, there was a knock at the door.

According to police, the woman’s daughter answered the door and an armed man entered the house.

The gunman shot the woman and her children fled.

Police spokesman Captain Frederick van Wyk said: “The suspect asked them where their mother was, and then the witness heard a gunshot going off. “When she went to the bathroom, she found the victim on the floor.”

Police found the woman’s body in the bathroom with a gunshot wound. The young children reportedly ran to neighbours, seeking safety. The suspect was seen jumping over a fence and running in the direction of Mew Way.

Van Wyk said three men had been taken in for questioning on Thursday afternoon.

“Preliminary investigation led police to three suspects,” Van Wyk said.
