Four people have been shot and killed and two others wounded at the Hout Bay taxi rank in Cape Town in renewed taxi violence in the area.

Last week, a taxi driver was shot and killed following a dispute over routes.

A number of roads in the area have been cordoned off.

Police spokesperson Andre Traut says crime scene experts are still at the scene.

“A team of specialist detectives has been established to look into these murders, including the one which occurred last Thursday, also in Hout Bay. Several operations are currently underway in an effort to quell the violence. Arrests are yet to be made,” says Traut.
