A 22-year old Port Elizabeth man was killed in yet another fatal gang-related shooting in the city's northern areas at the weekend.

Police spokesperson, Col Pricilla Naidu says it is alleged that two men went to a house in Bham Place in Bloemendal for a haircut on Saturday morning, when an unknown man approached from the back of the house and started shooting at them.

She says 22-year old Dillion Jordaan was fatally wounded in the back and arm, and he died at the scene, while his 29-year old friend sustained multiple gunshot wounds.

Naidu says the barber escaped unharmed.

The Provincial Organised Crime Investigation Unit is investigating a case of murder and two of attempted murder.

Col Naidu says the incident was gang-related and no arrests have yet been made.
