Samora Machel CPF spokesperson Bongani Maqungwana says police are following up on leads that may lead to the whereabouts of the two gunmen.

Locals claim that the two suspects are young boys who previously attended school at Heinz Park Primary.

Maqungwana believes that gang violence in the area may have spilled into the school community.

He says neighbourhood watches have been activated and the community has asked for police reinforcements to increase visibility in the area.

There are also rumours that suspects were previous learners... They are known to the community and the police are following leads to determine the whereabouts of the boys.

Bongani Maqungwana, Spokesperson - Samora Machel CPF

These are young boys and I can confirm that they are less than 20 years [old] according to information that we are receiving from the community.
