Police have identified Dwayne King as the man who was shot during rush hour traffic along the Beetham Highway earlier today.
King was attacked just around 8.30 am by two masked men armed with high-powered weapons near the flyover at National Petroleum. He was driving his silver Nissan Tiida along the westbound lane of the highway at the time.
The gunmen fled the scene in their vehicle in the chaos which ensued, hitting other vehicles as they weaved through traffic and used the highway's shoulder to escape.
One woman is also said to have been injured after her car was hit by the getaway car, spun several times and landed in a ditch near NP. She was subsequently taken to hospital.
The getaway car was later found abandoned behind the nearby Bhagwansingh’s hardware in Sea Lots.
Police believe the incident is gang-related as they know the victim well.
More on this as info comes to hand.
