A man was killed and another critically injured when they were allegedly stoned by residents of Dobsonville Extension Two, Soweto.
“One [man] died at the scene and the other was taken to hospital,” Gauteng police spokesperson Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said today.
He said the motive for the attack on the pair was unknown and police were struggling to find information.
“We did not find anyone in the street but discovered rocks and hammers around them. If there are people who know what happened, they can contact police and assist with information,” he said.
Cases of murder and attempted murder were opened.
