KILLED: Darryn September, 20

This young dad was hit by 20 bullets after a shooter ambushed him while he was on his way to work.

Police say Darryn September, 20, was gunned down just a few metres from his house in Carmen Street, Scottsdene, just before 7am.

Residents say their area has been like a war zone since Sunday, when skollies also shot at each other.

It’s believed a teenager was shot and killed in a gang-related incident, but this could not be confirmed yesterday.

Darryn’s mother, who asked to remain anonymous, says her son was not involved with gangsters.

The 36-year-old woman tells the Daily Voice: “He was on his way to work in Joostenbergvlakte. He was wearing a backpack, and he was hit more than 20 times, and when we got to him he was still wearing the rugsak.

“He has a little baby daughter of four months old.”

The ouma, who lost her husband in April, says Darryn was also shot at three weeks ago, when he was hit in the arm.

“But I can confirm that he was not involved with gangsters. He still attended church with us on Monday night.

“Now he will never see his daughter grow up,” she sobs.

Police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk says the killer was still at large.
