Western Cape high school pupil dies
NATIONAL NEWS - A teenage boy shot at an Athlone, Cape Town, high school on Wednesday morning has died, Western Cape police said.
"Yes, he passed away in hospital," Captain FC van Wyk said.
No arrests had been made and the attempted murder charge was changed to murder. There were conflicting reports about the details of the shooting.
Education MEC Donald Grant said 17-year-old Enrico Martin was shot shortly after 8am while entering the Spes Bona High School's premises.
He was allegedly shot by a person not enrolled at the school, but dressed in a school uniform.
Grant said paramedics were able to revive Martin before taking him to Groote Schuur Hospital. The department arranged for trauma counselling for pupils and teachers.
Western Cape police said the pupil was 18-years-old. Three men, two of them armed, dressed in school tracksuit tops approached him.
"One of them fired shots at the victim, who sustained a gunshot wound to the head," Van Wyk said earlier.
"The circumstances surrounding the incident are being investigated and the motive is yet to be established, and therefore it is not possible to speculate on gang violence at this stage."
