A 30-year-old Kuils River mother of two was one of the two people killed at the Cubana nightclub shooting, in Stellenbosch, at the weekend.
Nicole Muller an ex-Brackenfell High School pupil was shot in the head while on the dance floor shortly after midnight on Saturday morning. A 40-year-old man — who was the one chased into the crowded nightclub by the two shooters — was also killed.
Police are investigating the incident, said provincial police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk.
Nicole’s sister Sherri Alfestus, 32, told the Daily Voice that the family was devastated.
“My sister lived in Kuils River, was married and had two sons aged 4 and 5. The family is distraught,” she said.
Nicole had been out with friends when she was killed. The Cubana nightclub posted a message of sympathy on its Facebook page on Saturday.
“The Cubana Group would like to extend its sincerest condolences to the families of the two guests tragically killed in a shooting incident in the early hours of this morning(Saturday).
“We are in the process of arranging trauma counselling for any person who has been affected by last night’s incident. Should you require trauma counselling, please contact Cubana head office on 021 9131300.”
