Police are investigating a shooting at a Mitchells Plain high school today which left two learners wounded. The incident took place at Oval North Secondary School in Beacon Valley. Police spokesperson Tembinkosi Kinana said two suspects have been arrested and the motive is still being investigated.

“Due to the circumstances surrounding the case, the police have opened an attempted murder case,” he said.

The one learner was shot in the arm while the other pupil was shot in the chest and leg. The wounded are between 19 and 20 years old. They are both in a stable condition.

Beacon Valley has been hotspot for gang violence of late. However, Kinana could not comment on whether it was a gang shooting.

“There is no indication that the incident was gang related. However we leave everything to the investigation to tell us what actually happened.”

Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum (CPF) spokesperson Lynn Phillips said they are concerned by how this incident will impact learning. Learners are currently busy writing exams at school.

“From community police side we condemn all acts of such acts of violence. My greatest concern is that these learners are writing exams and this incident will affect their year end results. We can’t tolerate these crimes as the listeners fear having to go to school now.” VOC (Nailah Cornelissen)
