A case of attempted murder has been opened at the Manenberg police station after a woman was allegedly shot by her husband over the weekend.

The incident took place late on Saturday night when the 23-year-old woman got into an argument with her husband while he was drinking alcohol. It is further alleged that the man started becoming violent, trying to choke the woman before loading and firing a zip gun at her head at point blank range.

He subsequently fled the scene on foot and is yet to be arrested.

The woman was taken to the Heideveld emergency unit, where she was treated.
