Melville shooting

Gauteng Acting Premier Panyaza Lesufi briefed the media during a visit to survivors of the shooting at Helen Joseph Hospital.

Gauteng Acting Premier Panyaza Lesufi says police are confident they're close to the breakthrough they're looking for in their investigation into the New Year's Eve drive-by shooting in Melville.

Two women were killed and six people injured when gunmen opened fire from a car outside Poppy's restaurant.

Lesufi visited survivors of the shooting at Helen Joseph Hospital on Friday.

EWN's Edwin Ntshidi reports that Lesufi relayed the information that the BMW SUV driven by the shooters was a "cloned car" with the registration of another vehicle.

Mr Lesufi told us that 'we are working around the clock and we know who this car belongs to.'

Lesufi said police did not want to divulge too much about the case.

Four of the survivors are still in hospital and one, who was shot in the head, is in a critical condition.

In Melville, the street where the shooting took place is lined with flowers.

On Thursday night residents came together for a candlelight vigil to mourn the dead and support one another.
