An 18-year-old matric student was killed and another man wounded when a group of men hijacked a vehicle in Pinetown, near Durban.

“The 22-year-old was speaking to a friend outside the property at about 9pm yesterday when the suspects arrived in a vehicle and demanded the keys to the friend’s car,” said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.
The 22-year-old man jumped over the property’s fence, calling for help.

The men shot the 22-year-old in the leg.

His 18-year old brother, who was a twin, came out of the house. He was shot in the face and died on the scene. No one else was injured.

The men got away with a blue Toyota Yaris.?
