Durban – A man was robbed and shot on Friday morning while he was attending to his vehicle which had broken down on the N2 near the M7 off-ramp in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, local paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Pieter Rossouw said the man stopped on the side of the road to assess his vehicle and to wait for friends to come and help him.

While he was waiting for help, another vehicle stopped near the man and its occupants allegedly robbed him of some of his possessions at gun point, said Rossouw. "After he was robbed he was apparently shot in his shoulder by the robbers."

Rossouw said the man was treated for his gunshot wound.

"He was also in serious shock. Paramedics transported the man to Albert Luthuli Hospital for further treatment."

Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said the incident happened at around 07:45.

"The suspects took cash as well as a cellphone before they fled the scene."

Zwane said a case of attempted murder and robbery was opened at Cato Manor police station and no arrests had been made.
