Durban – The man accused of killing a Wentworth youngster in a shooting at the weekend says he too is a victim, because he was shot in the back.

Ryan Ashley Isaacs, 35, of the Bluff, claimed he was targeted because he is a potential State witness in a case involving another alleged gang-related shooting that took place outside a Florida Road restaurant in May.
