Joburg doctor shot dead

Johannesburg - A 55-year-old doctor was shot and killed in Kempton Park on Friday night, Johannesburg paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said it was believed the doctor went to lock his kitchen door around 20:00 when he was attacked by several gunmen.

Netcare 911 paramedics arrived on scene and found the doctor lying in the courtyard just outside the kitchen door.

They raced over to treat the man but on examination found that he had been fatally wounded.

"One of the suspects was wounded by his fellow gunman in the fracas. Police arrested the wounded suspect some metres away from the crime scene. Paramedics found the wounded man lying in a prostrate position on the roadway with a gunshot wound to his leg," said Botha.

After being stabilised the suspect was transported under guard to an area hospital for further treatment.
