The police are investigating an alleged gang-related shooting in Junction Road in Salt River on Thursday, where a BMW landed on its side after colliding with several vehicles.
The driver of the golden BMW reportedly contracted several gunshot wounds, including to the head, but his female passenger was not injured.
"A 48-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, the motive for the shooting incident is not yet known and is being investigated and an attempted murder was recorded for investigation," said police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk.
TimesLive reported that the injured car driver is presumably the brother of the alleged gangster Ashley Fields. Video footage shows a man drawn from a BMW van Fields, which operates a taxi company in Salt River.
Fields are expected to meet with Nafiz Modack, Colin Booysen and Jacques Cronje in the regional court of Cape Town in November on charges of extortion and intimidation in connection with their alleged extortion of Grand Café Africa at Green Point.
Carl Lakay, the fifth accused, was killed at the beginning of the month during a drive-by shooting in Belhar. Lakay was part of a group led by Modack and Booysen, allegedly behind the takeover of the security of nightclubs from another group led by Mark Lifman, Jerome "Donkie" Booysen and Andre Naude.
The death of Lakay came soon after Donkie Booysen, the alleged boss of the Sexy Boys gang, survived another attempt at his death at the end of last month.
