“The motive and identities of the two gunmen behind the shooting are unknown at the time of publishing.
“What we can confirm for now is that a well-known musician, 35 years old, and his bodyguard, who is said to be 34 years old, was shot and killed in Morningside on Florida Road on Friday night.
“What we have for now is that a musician and his security detail were leaving supper in a restaurant. So as they were leaving for their vehicle, two unknown gunmen came across the street on foot and opened fire on them, killing them instantly.
“Nobody else was quite injured apart from the two men who were killed. We will be investigating two counts of murder with the hope of finding the culprits and bring them to justice.”
