Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel Andre Traut said the circumstances surrounding an attempted murder case are being investigated following an incident at 7.45 pm on Thursday in Gqoloma Street Old Crossroads in Nyanga.
“An unknown suspect opened fire on a group of people who were sitting outside the residence and wounded a 49-year-old female and her 13-year-old son.
“Both victims were admitted to hospital for treatment. The motive for the incident is yet to be determined and the suspect is yet to be arrested.”
