Eshowe - Police are appealing to the public to help solve the murder of Buzaba Virginia Xulu in Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal.

"On Sunday, the victim and her family were preparing to go to bed when the victim saw shadows by the window and she screamed. A gunshot was fired through the window, fatally wounding her.

"Two armed suspects entered the house through the window and demanded the victim's daughter give them money," police spokesperson, Nqobile Gwala, said.

The attack happened in the Ogawula area.

The daughter took a small amount of money and handed it over to the suspects who then asked her to show him the way out while the other suspects had already jumped out the window.

When the victim's son heard the gunshots, he approached the house. The perpetrators then opened fire, wounding him in the chest.

"He managed to flee to the nearby bushes until the suspects left the scene. He was taken to hospital for medical attention where he is reported to be in a serious but stable condition."

Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects is urged to contact Eshowe SAPS' Constable John Wynne on 035 473 4211/4215 or the Crime Stop Number 08600 10111.
