Two teen cousins from Nelson Mandela Bay were shot dead in a street in Kariega on Saturday – one died of multiple bullet wounds and the other from a single shot.
The bodies of Keanu Salman, 16, and Lee-Win Goliath, 18, lay side by side on the pavement across from their grandmother’s house in Palm Drive.
According to police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu, a relative of the cousins heard a gunshot and went to investigate. She found the two teens sprawled on the pavement.
At the time, they were playing in the street.
Naidu said the circumstances surrounding the incident were still sketchy.
“The motive is unknown. Police are investigating two cases of murder,” she added.
