A five-year-old boy has been shot and killed in Lavender Hill in Cape Town.

Western Cape Police spokesperson FC van Wyk says a 22-year old man was also shot and wounded in the same incident. He was transported to a nearby hospital.

A murder and attempted murder case have been opened. Earlier this month, a ten-year-old girl was gunned down metres from her family home in Tafelsig when she was caught in gang crossfire.

Three suspects were arrested in that incident.
