Two people were killed and five injured, including an 8-year-old girl, in three shooting incidents in Hanover Park on Thursday.

Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said all three incidents took place on Thursday morning, hours apart from each other.
"A 23-year-old man was shot and wounded at the bus terminus in Hanover Park at 05:15 by an unknown suspect who fled the scene," Traut said.

Four hours later, at 09:10, a 27-year-old man was shot and killed and three others, aged 32, 33 and 40, were wounded during a shooting incident in Athens Walk in Hanover Park.

"During this incident an 8-year-old girl was hit by a stray bullet and admitted to hospital," Traut said. The suspects also fled.

Traut then confirmed that another man, 20, was shot and killed in an incident in Groenall Walk, Hanover Park, at 11:15, also by an unknown suspect.
The injured were taken to Groote Schuur hospital, EMS spokesperson Robert Daniels said in a statement. EMS personnel were no longer entering Hanover Park without a police escort.
