A father is currently recuperating from a shooting, which resulted in the death of his baby daughter.

On Tuesday, an eight-month-old was killed during a shooting in Wolseley in the Breede River Valley.

Police carried an arrest and a 34-year old suspect will come before the court on Friday linked with the murder of the baby girl.

He was also charged with the attempted murder of the child’s father.

According to the police, the injured man, his wife, and their daughter were all at home in the Pine Valley informal settlement when suddenly four assailants barged in on Tuesday night.

One of the assailants shot at the man who was carrying his baby in his arms.

The little baby girl died after she was hit by a bullet.

However, her father sustained a bullet wound on his hand and was rushed to a hospital for immediate medical attention.

The motive still remains unclear.
