Christmas day shooting - 1 dead
An Indian male was shot in the head this afternoon, in Mandeni.
The Christmas Day shooting has left a family devastated after the victim was in the process of leaving his home, when his dogs ran out of the yard towards the street. A security guard who was passing the residence, felt threatened and drew his firearm.
The victim son, who was following the dogs, pleaded with the guard not to shoot the non-aggressive pets. Moments later, a single gunshot was discharged. The victims son turned towards his father, and found him lying on the ground.
IPSS Medical Rescue advanced life support paramedics worked tirelessly to stabilize the victim. The critically injured man was placed on a ventilator before being rushed to hospital for further care.
Unfortunately the victim died in hospital due to his extensive injuries shortly after arrival.
Police are currently on scene and are investigating the incident.
