A MAN was killed in an apparent shoot-out at the intersection of Benares and Patna Road in Botha's Hill last week.

ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene to find police at the scene.

On inspection, paramedics found the lifeless body of a man lying in the driver's seat of a taxi.

ER24 paramedics assessed the man and found that he had already succumbed to his multiple gunshot wounds.

“Unfortunately, nothing more could be done for the patient and he was declared dead on scene,” said a paramedic.

No other injuries were reported on the scene.

The cause of the shooting is not yet known, but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
