A 66-year-old man was shot dead after he attempted to save his neighbour and his domestic worker from suspected robbers in Dawn Park in Boksburg, police said on Thursday.

The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon after the man heard screams at his neighbour's house, police spokesperson Constable Nkemeleng Mabula said.

"The homeowner said the four suspects forced him to open the door and when his domestic worker screamed his neighbour came rushing to help," said Mabula.

The suspects shot and killed the neighbour.

They fled the scene with the 66-year-old man's firearm. No arrests have been made and a case of murder was opened.
