Man killed during Free State robbery
Johannesburg - A man was shot dead by house robbers in Thabong, Free State police said on Thursday.
The 35-year-old parked his car, entered his house and was shot on Wednesday evening, Warrant Officer Malebo Khosana said.
He was hit in the face and neck and died on the scene.
"The two men who did this fled the scene without taking anything from the house."
Khosana said the victim's mother, grandmother, brother and teenage daughter were also in the house. They were held at gunpoint.
"They sat with them waiting for the deceased to arrive. He was shot and killed instantly on his entrance. The motive of the murder is unclear," Khosana said.
One of the alleged killers was believed to be involved in other two house robberies in Thabong earlier this month.
