Two people were shot dead last night at Cubaña in Stellenbosch. According to the Western Cape Metro EMS, the two victims died on the scene. A third person was injured.
Media reports identified the victims as Nicole Muller (30), a mother of two from Kuils River, and Donovan Jacobs (40).
According to an eyewitness, the shooting started some time around midnight, from outside the club. One of the victims ran into the kitchen, where he was shot.
A woman who was on the dance floor was shot. “The woman was just unfortunate because there were about 30 people on the dance floor and she was the one who got shot,” said the eyewitness, who did not want to be named.
Her husband arrived on the scene shortly after the shooting, shouting “My wife, my wife!” She was at Cubaña with a group of friends celebrating a 30th birthday party.
Another eyewitness said that two men fled the scene after gunshots were heard. One tall person with a black hoodie and one shorter person were seen getting into a black Citi Golf with a CY number plate.
The street outside Cubaña was chaotic after the shooting, with more than 20 police officers combing the scene and several police cars blocking the entrance to the club.
Students who have been affected by the shooting can visit the counselling unit in Victoria street or call the SSVO (Centre for Student Counseling and Development) at 082 557 0880.
