A young man was stabbed to death in what eyewitness described as a targeted attack in Diana Park this afternoon.
The killing took place close to the bus stop at the busy Diana Park Commercial Centre at 2pm. Shocked eyewitness reported that a white Mercedes pulled up alongside the victim, described as in his late teens or early twenties. A man got out of the car and stabbed the youth several times, before getting back in and speeding off. The attack was witnessed by dozens of schoolchildren.
Witnesses described that a dentist from a nearby clinic rushed out to give the youth CPR but was unable to save him.
Police have set up roadblocks at both ends of the street as they waited for a judge to prononce the victim deceased. In heart rending scenes, the youth’s mother and sister were being comforted by friends.
