MARCH 13, 2015

A 22-year-old Port Elizabeth man died on Friday afternoon in a suspected gang-related shooting outside Sanctor High School in the city’s Bethelsdorp suburb. According to the police the man had gone to the school to pick up his girlfriend.

That is when a lone gunman, dressed in grey school pants and white shirt, opened fire on his car.

Seven shots were reportedly fired at the car.

In a desperate bid to get away from the gunmen, the victim smashed into two cars and also ran over two school children, aged between 9 and 10, before his car came to a stand still.

The man, whose name is being withheld, died on the scene while his girlfriend escaped unharmed.

Police said that the shooter was still at large.
