Durban - A third suspected house robber has died after being shot in Durban North on Thursday night.

Two others were shot dead on the scene.

A well placed police source, who could not be named as he is not authorised to speak the media, told News24 that four men had forced their way into a home in Welwitchia Avenue in Glen Hills.

"Four men in a Golf 7 GTI had forced the gate open and reversed inside the property before they used a 10 pound hammer to break down the front door," he said.

"A neighbour heard the commotion and took on the men.

"These guys were professionals and were wearing gloves and balaclavas. The car they were using had been stolen in Chatsworth," the source added.

A fourth suspect is understood to be at large.

Police recovered two firearms at the scene and the homeowners were uninjured in the hail of bullets.
