Pretoria- A man was shot and killed in Danville, west of Pretoria, on Friday in what is believed to be a road rage incident.

The shooting occurred at around 10:00 along Wrentmore Street.

Police said the deceased, a plumber, was allegedly stopped by a man driving a double cab Toyota Hilux bakkie.

Police spokesperson Constable Tumisang Moloto said the bakkie stopped a few metres behind the plumber.

“The plumber got out of his car and went to speak to the man. One other person, who was with deceased, remained in the car while he went to speak to driver of the bakkie. Shortly after he saw the driver running back and he collapsed next to car,” he said.

More to follow.
