Police spokesperson Kay Makhubele says a case of murder and attempted hijacking is being investigated.

Masilela died at a Tembisa hospital after being shot in an attempted hijacking in the Umnonjaneni Section of Tembisa.

It is believed she died after hearing the news of her nephew's death.

Police have appealed to members of the Tembisa community to come forward with any leads on the occupants of the black Jeep who opened fire and killed actor Dumi Masilela.

Masilela's younger brother Mbongeni confirmed that both his brother and aunt had died.
