Police spokesperson Captain Senaya says that two suspects approached the vehicle and one of the men shot at the victim twice.

It's understood that they gained entry to the school after threatening the school's security guard at gunpoint.

Captain Senaya says the incident appears to have been a targeted hit.

The identity of the gunmen and the motive for the shooting is still unknown at this stage.

It looks like it was a hit. It was just a straight hit.
