Cape Town - Cape Town police have confirmed that two suspects are being questioned in connection with the brazen assassination of defence lawyer Pete Mihalik on Tuesday.
Police spokesperson Noloyiso Rwexana said that the men had, however, not been arrested yet.
"The detectives from the Anti-Gang unit have taken two men in for questioning. Both not charged at this stage. Investigation is ongoing," said Rwexana.
Mihalik, 50, was shot in the head while dropping his children off at their private school Reddam House in Green Point on Tuesday morning. A single bullet hole could be seen through the window of the driver's side of his Mercedes-Benz, but neighbours reported hearing two gunshots.
Mihalik's eight-year-old son was wounded in the attack and rushed to hospital. He also has a 16-year-old daughter. His wife, who suffered from depression, committed suicide three years ago.
