The murder of a 16-year-old boy in Uitsig has sparked renewed concerns about skollies robbing taxis.
Damian Davids was killed while walking home on Saturday morning when a gunman opened fire on him and his friend in Connaught Road.
Residents say local gangs are terrorising the area, robbing taxis and opening fire on anyone in Connaught Road, while police are nowhere to be seen.
Community worker, Pastor Adam Alexander, says the murder has rocked the community who are pleading for action from police.
“When I heard it was him, I was shocked. He was not a gangster or involved in these activities but he was shot,” says the pastor.
