Security reviewed after clinic shooting

Man fatally shot in Cape Town healthcare facility

The Eastridge Clinic in Cape Town is beefing up security after a 23-year-old man was fatally shot, according to an article on the News 24 website.

"The clinic will revisit security arrangements  . . in the wake of this incident – budget dependent,” a clinic spokesperson said.

The Eastridge Clinic staff also have panic buttons linked to the City’s Law Enforcement Rapid Response Unit.
