Watch: Man gets executed at Gordon’s Bay eatery
CCTV footage of an establishment near the tavern, on Beach Road, captured the tragic end to a man’s life. What’s even more bloodcurdling about this killing is the calm manner in which it was executed by the shooter.
In the short clip, a motorcyclist can be seen disembarking from his bike, right across the road from Talla’s Tavern. With his helmet still on, he casually walks over to the tavern’s patio, approaches a table where a man is seated, extends his arm and suddenly, we see the silhouette of a man fall to the ground.
Right afterwards, the motorcyclist, now identified as a possible shooter, turns around and casually crosses the road to get on his bike.
The video ends as he skids off.
Do Cape Town police have a suspect?
