“They then ran when they saw him and jumped through the window. One turned back and killed Marvin,” he said.
Jacob said there were no neighbourhood watch groups or street committees in the area – which is a huge concern. “Before we had active groups, but now we have nothing. Men and women, let us stand together and fight against crime, it is our community we need to take action,” he said.
Marvin was a wonderful young man who was loved by many, says his grieving father.
Mitchells Plain police spokesperson Captain Ian Williams said Marvin’s body had been found at the front door of the house. “He was shot in the chest and on the right side of his body.”
Captain Williams said no one had been arrested but police were investigating a case of murder.
