Durban - A man was shot dead in a hit-style killing in Briardene, Durban, on Thursday night.

Marshall Security spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said they were alerted to the shooting and raced to the scene in Stanhope Place, where four men had entered a business.

“An altercation had occurred between the males and the owner, with one of the suspects producing a firearm, shooting the business owner multiple times, before fleeing the scene in an unknown direction in a silver sedan,” he said.

Paramedics declared the man dead.

“An extensive search was conducted for the suspects involved. However, they remain at large,” he said.

A police source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told News24 that officers found over 10 spent cartridges at the scene and that the victim was shot more than six times.

Van Reenen said the motive for the shooting was still unknown and would be investigated.
