Durban - Two children have been left traumatised after seeing their father shoot and injure his wife and kill a Grade 11 pupil at their Amanzimtoti home.

The violent outburst was apparently prompted by jealousy and a police source said a love triangle was the reason for the shootings, reported the Daily News.

The father, who is a teacher, shot his wife and the other unidentified child in front of his 5-year-old and 8-year-old.

He was arrested and charged with attempted murder and murder.

He was said to have handed himself over to police and admitted to the shootings.

The wife was shot in her thighs and taken to hospital.   

Neighbours were looking after the children and counsellors had been sent to attend to them.

It was unclear if the woman was the children’s biological mother.

      Oi, love triangle, Dad shoots mother in the thighs, an 11th grade pupil is killed. Sounds to me like the mom had an affair with one of the dad's pupils and he he found out about it. Who's the piece of sh$t now? Not that I condone shooting anyone, but if I am right, what this woman did, did not just f$ck up their marriage, she slept with an underage child, and ruined this guy's career. But then again, I am just speculating.

    What a complete idiot. Hopefully, he goes to jail for a long time.

    pity the punishment won't fit the crime.

    That moment when you find out, 17 years later, that the first born is not your child!!! Let the law deal with him, crimes of passion are the worst.

    What a rotter. Hope he burns in the fires of hell for his heinous act.

    I wonder why he did not kill himself instead of the wife. This clearly shows that he does not value life. Shame poor learner. May his/her soul rest in peace.

    I get the feeling he wasn't aiming for her thighs...an idiot and luckily a bad shot as well.

    How sad, I feel empathy with the children, RIP G11 student and sympathies with the family. I hope this man gets a life sentance or death

    Fortunately the woman did not get killed by this bastard, he must just be removed to their lives, the kids and their mom.

    Looks like she was getting some from the schoolboy. And she was euphemistically shot in the "thighs".

  • Viviane Tavershima - 2012-09-06 10:31

    what kind of man would allow emotions rule his thoughts?and does true love not give room for forgiveness and reconciliation?he should be persecuted accordingly.

  • dnxumalo2 - 2012-09-06 10:43

    While I do not condone killing people, I understand how it feels to think that someone else is warming your woman up.Not to mention giving her children.

    The Grade 11 was bonking his wife that's why he killed the learner...I hope he drops the soap in jail, they will teach him how its done than let a Grade 11 learner do his job...
