A 15-year-old boy was shot and killed in Valhalla Park, Cape Town, on Sunday afternoon, Western Cape emergency services said.
“A gunshot wound to the head caused the death of a 15-year-old boy in Eleanor Road, Valhalla Park,” spokesperson Robert Daniels said.
“Details surrounding his death are still unclear.”
Western Cape emergency personnel came across the body of the boy inside a house, while tending to a less serious medical emergency in the immediate area.
Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident, a 25-year-old man was taken to Tygerberg hospital by provincial emergency services in a critical but stable condition after also suffering a gunshot injury to the head.
“He was shot on the side of Ertjie Boom Road in Delft and his incident appears to be gang related,” Daniels said.
