South Africa – A Cape Town shooter has been committed to 30 years in jail for killing a woman and child in Atlantis gang shooting.

Anthonio Booysen, an alleged Cape Town gangster has been sentenced to an effective 30 years’ imprisonment for the murders of a five-year-old girl and a 34-year-old woman during a New Year’s Day shooting in 2020.
During the shoot-out, three other people were injured in the incident.

Anthonio was sentenced in the Western Cape High in Cape Town on Monday. He faced charges of murder, attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

“The shooting took place just after 21:30 when three gang members fired multiple shots at a rival gang member in Flamingo Park, Atlantis,” said police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk.

“The two victims were hit by stray bullets. Three people were also injured during the shooting.” Van Wyk added.

Booysen’s co-accused were acquitted on all charges, according to the Cape Times. During the trial, a witness identified Booysen as the shooter.

Western Cape police commissioner, Lieutenant General Tembisile Patekele, welcomed the sentence.

“We are so appreciative of all the efforts and a job well done by those who participated in this case. We hope that the family will find closure and that the sentence will serve as a deterrent to others who might consider emulating the actions of the accused,” said Patekele.
