There have been two more hits in Pie­termaritzburg that claimed the lives of three people and one hit in Richmond that claimed one life.

A couple were found shot dead in their bakkie on Old Greytown Road, near Pietermaritzburg, on Tuesday morning. The couple, from the Hardingsdale farm area close to where the incident happened, died in a hail of bullets while parked on a small dirt road off Old Greytown Road.

In a separate incident, KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele said a murder case is being investigated by Richmond police after a 34-year-old man was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting on Shepstone Street by unknown people on Tuesday, just before 10.30 am.
