A three-year-old girl has been shot and killed in Heather Park in Eerste River in a gang-related shooting.
According to police spokesperson, Novela Potelwa, three unknown suspects reportedly stopped in front of a house in Heather Park and started shooting randomly.
The little girl was shot in the head and died in hospital.
Chairperson of the local Community Policing Forum, Julian Unthank told Radio 786 that the shooters were allegedly gangsters dressed in police uniform.
Unthank says the suspects targeted the wrong house last night, Tuesday 28 July. The rival gang in the area then retaliated against the shooters.
Five suspects including two teenagers have been arrested.
