A caller to the John Maytham Show on CapeTalk describes seeing a teenager gunned down in Mitchells Plain on Friday afternoon.

A Mitchells Plain resident called the John Maytham Show on CapeTalk on Friday afternoon to describe her horror at having just seen a teenage boy shot dead metres from her home.

Two guys jumped out with balaclavas on...they shot him in the head, the shoulders...in the back.

Madoeneeya says she heard a succession of ten, loud shots - and that there were small children playing in the area at the time.

They could have shot them as well...they saw everything
