Gauteng police are searching for four suspects following a shooting incident that took place on Friday, 20 November, in Boksburg, where three people including a child were injured and one person killed.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Gauteng police spokesperson, captain Kay Makhubele  said that it is reported that a white Ford Ranger bumped and intercepted a white BMW with four occupants inside.

"Two armed men allegedly alighted from the Ford Ranger and started shooting at the car, fatally wounding one, while three victims, including a child were airlifted to hospital for urgent medical attention," said Makhubele. 

He said the suspects allegedly then abandoned the Ford Ranger on the scene and fled in a getaway car with unknown description and unknown registration number.

"The motive behind the shooting is yet to be determined. Police are investigating cases of murder and attempted murder," said Makhubele.

"We're appealing to anyone who might have information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects to call the nearest police station or the crime stop number," he added.
