Cape Town - A second suspect is behind bars for the shooting at a restaurant in the plush Cape Town seaside suburb of Camps Bay in April, the police's specialised crime fighting unit, better known as the Hawks, said on Friday.

"A 36-year-old suspect from Mitchell’s Plain, linked to the shooting incident at Café Caprice ... was arrested yesterday by the Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Unit members," Hawks spokesman Lloyd Ramovha said.

"He is due to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court alongside Jordan Fabe (25)."

Fabe made a brief appearance in court on Monday in connection with the shooting after his arrest on Friday, September 29.

The Hawks took over the investigation from the local police after reports surfaced the shooting was linked to the underworld club turf war in Cape Town.

Two people sustained gunshot wounds when gunmen stormed into Cafe Caprice and started shooting indiscriminately.

The two arrests for the Cafe Caprice incident followed the arrest of Naeem Harris, 21, in connection another shooting incident allegedly linked to the turf war. Harris appeared in Court in September for the shooting outside the Coco Bar in Loop Street in May in which a DJ and a patron were wounded.
