Two men slain in Athlone shooting

Two men were killed and a man and a woman injured in a shooting at a Bridgetown council flat, police say.

Responding to the shooting at Sunbird Court, on Thursday March 24 at 9.45pm, police found the bodies of two men who had each been shot multiple times.

Two other people were hospitalised: a man with a gunshot wound to his neck and a woman who had been shot in her upper leg.

The four were reportedly shot by three men who jumped out of a white Uno and fired several rounds through the windows of the flat, said Athlone police spokeswoman Sergeant Zita Norman.

Seven bullet casings were found on the scene.

Police are investigating, and the shooters remain at large. Anyone with information, can contact Athlone police at 021 697 9238/39.
