A 28-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot during a violent home invasion in Durban North.
Adhir Ramsamujh (28) of Kenville was rushed to hospital on Thursday morning after attempting to fight off robbers at his home.
On Thursday morning, two vehicles with eight unknown men, four of whom were armed, attacked a 58-year-old man while he was exiting his yard in Temple Road, Kenville.
“They exited their vehicles and forced him back into the house where they held the victim and his family up,” said Colonel Thembeka Mbhele, provincial police spokesperson.
“The suspects ransacked the house and a 28-year-old man was shot in the stomach when he tried to intercept the robbers.”
Mbhele said a case of attempted murder has been opened at Greenwood Park Police Station for investigation.
Suren Ramsamujh, Adhir’s father, said his son was in a critical state in hospital.
Ramsamujh said no one else was hurt in the robbery.
