Chaos erupted on Friday afternoon when a 22-year-old man was gunned down in his car in front of shocked pupils and parents in Coleus Crescent, Bethelsdorp.
Nezmy Titus, who died on the scene, lost control of his white Volkswagen Polo and crashed into two other cars before his vehicle came to a standstill. In the process, two nine-year-old Sanctor Primary pupils, running for cover after they heard the gunshots, were injured when the Polo hit them.
