Mitchells Plain high school matric pupil, Wakeel Dreyer, was shot dead Just hours before the release of his matric results in Cape Town

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Mitchells Plain high school matric pupil, Wakeel Dreyer, was shot dead.

[He] sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his body. The victim was declared deceased on the scene by medical personnel. The unknown suspects fled the scene and are yet to be arrested. The motive for the attack is yet to be determined," Swartbooi added.

Dreyer was due to get his results at Beacon Hill High School on Friday.

His mother, Lucinda Roberts, told News24 she was "numb and heartbroken" that her only child died in such a cruel manner. 

She said:

When I got the news that he was killed, I immediately went to the scene and saw that his body was covered already.

Just hours before the release of his matric results, a teenager was gunned down in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town and a community activist claims that gangsters are responsible fr his murder.

Scores of people gathered at the scene on Thursday afternoon after a group of men in a vehicle pulled up at a tuck shop and shot the pupil, Wakeel Dreyer, 17 times.

Western Cape police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Joseph Swartbooi, said police found the body of the 18-year-old pupil at the scene just after 16:00.

A murder case is under investigation.

"I then said, 'No, that is not my son,', in the hope that he would walk out of the shop. But then they lifted the sheet from his face, and I just burst out crying and screaming. How is this even possible? My son, my beautiful boy, is gone from this world so soon," she said.

She added that she believed Dreyer was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

"I have no answers as to why they shot him so many times, but I pray that whoever did this to my boy will be caught and justice be served upon them. They took my only child away; we had a whole day planned together for the release of the results because it would've also been his valedictory today at school," an emotional Roberts said.

Roberts added that her son would always be remembered as the one person who made people smile.
