“It is alleged that on April 30, 2022, at 10.40pm at the intersection of Unity Avenue and Lenny Naidu Drive, four males were shot by unknown suspects while they were in a vehicle,” Gwala said.

“A 37-year-old male was declared dead at the scene due to injuries sustained. The other victims were taken to hospital for medical attention.”

Gwala added that the motive for the attack was unknown.

Amawele Emergency Services spokesperson Claude Subramodey said the service was called out to Bayview KFC for a drive-by shooting.

Their accident response unit arrived on the scene within minutes to find a car riddled with bullets, and three males were shot multiple times, Subramodey said.

“One male in his 30s was found slumped in the back seat with no signs of life and was declared dead on the scene. The remaining males were transported privately to hospitals for the further treatment they required,” Subramodey said.
