PADDOCK SAPS is investigating an inquest docket after a 36-year-old man was found in a room with a gunshot wound to the head. The man was at a house in Nyandezulu, Paddock on Tuesday at about 2.15am with a woman.

“An argument allegedly started and he took out a knife and threatened her. He then asked for his firearm, but she refused to fetch it for him,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid. The man then took the firearm and ran while allegedly firing two shots in her direction, but he missed her. She hid in a neighbour’s house.

Later a gunshot was heard and he was found dead in his room. No foul play is suspected at this stage. - Supplied
