A man was shot twice in the head when gunmen stormed into the popular Rylands nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning.Western Cape police are investigating this shooting that took place inside Club Galaxy just after 1 am.
The victim, only known as “Uncle”, miraculously survived the Club Galaxy shooting and was rushed to a hospital where he is believed to be in a stable condition.
A man who chose to be anonymous said the shooters were in the club and were searched when they came in. Then they went out and came back in, but weren’t searched again and started shooting. According to the witness, the gunmen were targeting one of the DJs on the line-up.
It is alleged that there were four men at the bar watching the guy and there were two outside in the car.
One of the DJs is the son of a man who was murdered last year and his father owned a nightclub in Eerste River. He came into the club with bodyguards and it made everyone very uncomfortable.
The guy who got shot was with this man who is now running his father’s business, and it’s believed he took revenge on his father’s killers and now they are trying to take revenge on him.
Footage of the attack, recorded on the club’s cameras, has been handed to cops.
The general manager for Club Galaxy, Sidney Oliver, said the club had been booked out for a private event, called “Summer Breeze”, in celebration of Jovita Nel, Lyle Marcus and Keegan Carter’s birthdays.
The line-up included VJ Jonno, Papichulo, Wonder Brothers, DJ Randall, Kings on Decks, Okkie X Brown, DJ Ralton, Luda-Ash and Chustar.
Police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, confirmed an attempted murder case is under investigation and no persons have been arrested in connection with the shooting.
