Masked gunmen massacre entire family

Cape Town - A family of three has been shot dead in their home in Ocean View. 

Henry Arnoldse, 60, his wife Marie and their daughter Chantal, 29, were killed allegedly by balaclava-wearing gunmen pretending to be police officers.

It is believed that the daughterís boyfriend, who recently came out of jail, was the target. He, and the coupleís two young children, aged two and eight, survived the attack. Close friends of the Arnoldse family say three gunmen allegedly pretending to be police officers came to their house just before midnight. When the family refused to open up, the alleged killers kicked open the front door. After that they reportedly shot and killed the father and daughter, whose bodies were found in a bedroom in the house.

A friend said: ìMarie ran outside in her nightie but they got her at the pavement and shot her about seven times.î

The daughterís boyfriend, who was also at the house, fled with the children after he fought off the attackers. The friend said: ìThe one gunman placed the gun against his head but he grabbed it; we donít know how he managed to get away. ìThe boyfriend came out of prison four months ago for gun possession and he was involved in the gangs. A message was sent that they were going to shoot him, they were targeting him.î
