Police are investigating a case of murder after a security guard allegedly shot his wife at a shopping centre in Rocklands, Bloemfontein on Friday.

According to police, the couple had a quarrel at the shopping centre, which ended with the suspect allegedly drawing his service firearm and shooting his wife.
