A 21 year old gang affiliate, suspected of murder, handed himself over to investigators at the Provincial Gang Investigation Unit yesterday afternoon, 15 March 2017.
It is alleged that on Sunday, 12 March 2017 at about 15:00, Randy Van Reenen (35 years) was fatally gunned down outside a house in Libra Street Gelvandale. According to police information, Van Reenen was standing outside the house smoking with two other people. They noticed the two suspects who are known to them. Van Reenen then went inside the house. The suspects stood at the gate and called out to Van Reenen. Van Reenen went outside and an argument ensued whereby one of the suspect’s pulled out a firearm and shot Van Reenen in his head.
Van Reenen died on the scene while the two suspects fled on foot. The deceased and the suspect are affiliated to the same gang (16 Honde). The motive for the murder is suspected to be internal conflict within the gang.
The suspect will appear in the Port Elizabeth magistrates’ court on Friday, 17 March 2017.
