A MAN was shot in the head on Saturday, May 6 in Prospecton.

According to Necare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha: “At approximately 3pm on Saturday, Netcare 911 paramedics were called to assist at a shooting incident in Power drive in Prospecton, Durban.”

Upon arrival, paramedics found that a 20-year-old man had been shot in the head.

“He was in a critical condition which necessitated advanced life support intervention, including ventilating the victim. He was transported by a Netcare 911 ambulance to hospital for further critical care.

“Reports from the scene indicate that there was an alleged road rage type altercation between the victim and a group of men in the road. SAPS were on the scene to investigate the incident and preceding events,” said Botha. - Supplied
