Western Cape detectives have their hands full with yet another mass shooting in Gugulethu, Cape Town.

The four men and a woman were gunned down by unknown people on Saturday evening.

It’s understood that the victims were sitting in two vehicles when gunmen opened fire on them.

This incident comes just a few days after five others were killed in the same township, last Monday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut says no arrests have been made at this stage.

“Police reports indicate that two vehicles were parked on the side of the road in NY 5 in Gugulethu at approximately 23:00 when a number of suspects were dropped a few metres from the two vehicles by another vehicle. The suspects, approached the two vehicles and started firing numerous shots at the two parked vehicles. After shooting,  the suspects fled in the vehicle that had earlier dropped them. The identities of the victims are yet to be released. SVC detectives are working around the clock in pursuit of a number of leads and no arrests have been effected yet”.
