The family was upset, according to a Facebook user who claims to know them — “our kids went to the same schools and played on the same basketball club.” 

Another Facebook user described it as “extremely terrible news,” adding that “mental illness, anxiety, and despair are on the increasing as a result of these trying times and Covid-19.” 

In Gqeberha, a murder suspect has been identified. 

In a separate incident, a 31-year-old man was arrested on various accusations, including attempted murder, theft from a motor vehicle, and trespassing with the purpose to steal, at the Gqeberha metro station. 

According to Saps, the incident occurred on Creswell Street in Sidwell: 

“On Saturday, July 31, 2021, at around 15:45 p.m., the security guard on the premises requested help after noticing three suspects climbing into the vehicle pound.” 

Three suspects ran in various directions after hopping over the border wall when Metro police arrived. One of the detainees attempted to strike the metro cop with a crowbar when the metro officer followed him. 

The officer fired one shot after warning the offender, hurting him in the upper groin area. The culprit was apprehended and transported to the hospital.
