Durban family claims drive-by shooting not gang-related

A KwaZulu-Natal family, struggling to come to terms with the murders of their three loved ones, have made an urgent plea to anyone who's come across graphic videos of the shootings in central Durban.

Brenden and Craig Thandroyen

The Thandroyen family has asked that you please delete the clips and refrain from sharing them.

It's been a week since brothers, Brenden and Craig, and Brenden's daughter, Grade 12 pupil Bianca, were gunned down in the Point area.

The brothers and Brenden's two children were in a car, when they came under fire outside a scrap metal yard on the corner of Mazeppa and Pickering Streets.

Twelve-year-old Carel, who was shot in the leg, was the sole survivor.

In a statement to Newswatch, the family says they're still shocked and devastated and have dismissed claims that their murders were related to gang violence.

The family says Brenden and Craig were considered pillars in their community and had helped the homeless for years.
