Johannesburg - A manhunt continued on Friday for four armed men who shot dead a teenage girl and wounded her father and sister in Muldersdrift on the West Rand, Gauteng police said.

"The 13-year-old girl, her 17-year-old sister and their father were attacked on Wednesday evening when they returned home," Captain Pinky Tsinyane told Sapa.

Alyssa Botha died after being shot in the stomach, Beeld reported. Her sister, Megan, was shot in her legs and wounded. Their father was shot in the stomach and had to have a kidney and part of his liver and colon removed.

Megan told police how they arrived home at about 19:00 on Wednesday evening when a group of men attacked them as they got out of the car.

She put her hands in the air and told them her phone was in her bag. Her sister did the same. A shot was fired and her sister fell, screaming. As Megan grabbed her to protect her, Alyssa was shot.

“They pulled me about 5m from the car and shot me. They grabbed my bag from my shoulders and shot me again while I was lying on the ground.”  

Most of the men ran away but one went to her father, Anton, who was still in the car, grabbing his phone and shooting him when he resisted.

“I crept to my sister and held her,” Megan said.
 
Anton Botha is in a stable condition in hospital.
