Businessman shot dead in Durban

A businessman died soon after being shot by robbers in Durban on Friday.

Police spokesman Lt-Col Thulani Zwane said the man was “accosted” at his business premises in Helen Joseph Road (formerly Davenport Road) by four men at about 4.30pm on Friday afternoon.

“They allegedly robbed him of an undisclosed amount of cash and airtime vouchers at gunpoint. They then shot and injured him before fleeing the scene.”

Garrith Jamieson, spokesman for Rescue Care paramedics, said paramedics managed to stabilise the man before transporting him to a nearby hospital.

However, shortly after arrival at hospital the man went into cardiac arrest and died despite the effort of doctors and paramedics.

Zwane said police were investigating a case of business robbery and murder.
