A fight has apparently broken out at the hospital where Sexy Boys gang leader Jerome "Donkie" Booysen, who was wounded in a shooting at Cape Town International Airport on Wednesday, is admitted.

Late on Thursday, police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said the scene was still active and she therefore could not yet comment on what had happened.

It is understood a man, who some sources with close knowledge of the matter say was dressed as a woman, targeted another man with close ties to Booysen on Thursday evening outside the hospital.

Other sources said Booysen himself was targeted.

News24 understands this led to an altercation, with one man being caught. This was not officially confirmed by police.

Some images of the scene, which News24 has seen, show police van parked outside the hospital, as well as a group of men walking around.

One image shows a wig on a floor near blood.

Another image showed a man sitting on a blood-smeared floor with a bloody face. A women's pump shoe was next to him.

Booysen was wounded in the Cape Town International Airport on Wednesday. A second man was also wounded in this shooting.

This was the third attempt on Jerome Booysen's life in roughly six months.

Both Jerome and his brother Colin Booysen have been involved in the nightclub security scene.

Colin Booysen has been working with controversial businessman Nafiz Modack, who earlier this year started taking control of nightclub security from a more established grouping.

This takeover has resulted in violence.

Several sources, with intimate knowledge of the matter, said Booysen was shot on Wednesday in retaliation for the killing of Donovan Jacobs, 40, who they said was a 28s gang member and who was shot dead in a Stellenbosch club last Saturday.

Nicole Muller, 30, a patron at the Cubana in Plein Street and a mother of two young boys, was also killed in the shooting.

A third person was wounded.

Sources warned that more retaliation shootings were expected.
