ONE of Port Elizabeth’s busiest intersections was closed for more than two hours following a suspected gang shooting in New Brighton yesterday.

Sinethemba Blinkie Danster, 28, was shot dead outside his Maduka Street home at the Ntshekisa Road intersection, after being chased by four men.

People gathered outside Danster’s home were mostly too scared to comment as they feared the shooters were still lurking among the onlookers and would target them next.

One resident watched as Danster, who was chased by four armed men, was shot several times before collapsing in front of his house. “The men took his gun and left,” he said.
