Johannesburg - There will be no update on the shooting of soccer player Senzo Meyiwa until national police commissioner Riah Phiyega briefs media later on Monday, Gauteng police said.

"At 12:00, the national commissioner will address the media," Brigadier Neville Malila said.

"There is nothing further to say until then."

The 27-year-old Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper and captain was shot dead at about 20:00 in Vosloorus on Sunday.

Malila could not confirm earlier whether Meyiwa was at his girlfriend, singer and actress Kelly Khumalo's home.

He was reportedly shot while protecting her.

No arrests had yet been made and police were investigating a case of murder.

The SA Police Service tweeted on Sunday: "There were seven people inside the house. Two suspects went into the house, one remained outside. The three fled on foot after the shooting."

Earlier on Monday, police offered a R150 000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest of the killers.
