A FRIENDLY visit turned to tragedy when a 15-year-old accidentally shot and killed his friend in Vubamasi KwaPata near Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.

Ayanda Khumalo (15) was shot once, allegedly by his friend who was playing with a gun that he allegedly took from his neighbour’s house.

The teenager who allegedly fired the gun was subsequently arrested and made a brief court appearance on Friday. He was remanded in custody until next week pending inquiries to verify his safety in the community before he can be released according to court sources.
