Man shot, no warning

2013-05-10 00:00

A MAN was shot dead while standing in the yard of a derelict municipal house in Jabu Ndlovu Street last night.

A paramedic on the scene told The Witness that the man was with a woman believed to be his girlfriend when another man came from behind them and fired three shots.

The man, who was thought to be in his 20s, died on the spot. The woman was found lying on the pavement, the paramedic said. She was taken to hospital by a Netcare911 ambulance.

A man who lived with the deceased in the house was angry. “I never got to see the b*****d’s face. He came without warning and shot our friend,” he said.

A police officer said they were trying to find a motive and were talking to witnesses who lived in the house, which is near Natalia.
