A Laudium ‘mafioso’ was killed and another man injured during a shooting outside Presley’s in Boksburg on Tuesday night.

Ziyaad Janoo gained popularity after featuring in a viral video, ‘Chicky Lamba’, in which he and his friends kidnapped a man and threatened him with a gun in 2014.

ER24 spokesperson Chitra Bodasing said paramedics arrive in Field Street and found two men in a vehicle, one of them with multiple gunshot wounds.

“Sadly there was nothing that could be done for that patient. He had succumbed to his injuries.”

She said the second person, who also had been shot, was in a critical condition. He was airlifted to hospital for further medical care.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the unknown killers fled in a black Subaru.

“We can’t confirm how many suspects were involved. We are investigating the motive behind the shooting. A case of murder and attempted murder is being investigated.”

According to reports, the shooting was a drug deal gone wrong.

Dlamini however could not confirm that.

Another video went viral where Janoo claimed to run Pretoria and Lenasia in Johannesburg.

WARNING: Video contains explicit language.
