Police are investigating a double murder after a young couple were found dead at the Stellendale complex in Kuils River.

Police are investigating the deaths of a young couple found dead with gunshot wounds at the Stellendale gated estate in Kuils River on Sunday night November 14.

Police have remained mum on the details other than to confirm a double-murder case is ongoing.

The incident happened in Newlands Crescent, Stellendale.

Northern News was blocked by security from entering the complex but managed to speak to two residents.

A resident, who claims to have known the woman only by her first name Siphokazi, 36, described her as a “sweet human being”.

The resident said she had lived there for more than three years.

One resident said the boyfriend did not live in the complex while another said they had heard gunshots on the Sunday.

Police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk said Kuils River police were investigating the shooting.
