Provincial police spokesperson, Andre Traut has confirmed the arrest of four suspects after a man was shot dead at a filling station in Kenilworth.

The four are also facing an attempted murder case after they fired shots at the police in Goodwood.

They will be appearing in the Wynberg Magistrate Court on charges of murder.

Our investigation has led to believe that the four suspects have links with a local gang in the Cape Flats and we have reasons to believe that the attack was a gang-related crime.

Andre Traut, Provincial spokesperson - Saps

We would like to know the motive for the killing and that part is still under investigation.
