In what looked like a scene from a western movie, a tow truck driver was killed in a drive-by shooting outside his home on Sunford Drive, Phoenix, on Sunday afternoon.

It is alleged that the thirty-eight-year-old man was followed to his residence by heavily armed men in a white Toyota Etios.  As the victim stopped outside his home, the suspects opened fire on him with high-calibre firearms.  The victim’s brother managed to return fire and shot the suspects’     vehicle, which caused the suspects to flee.

At approximately 14H00, Reaction Unit South Africa Phoenix Operations Centre received a call for assistance after residents in the area found the critically-injured man lying in the driver’s seat of a Mazda tow truck.  On arrival paramedics from a private ambulance service were in the process of resuscitating the Indian male, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Phoenix SAPS are investigating a case of murder.  The Etios used in the shooting was recovered in Southbury Avenue.  Suspects abandoned the vehicle on Southbury and hijacked a black Polo.

In a separate incident, on Monday at about 12H45, a sixty-four-year-old suspect reported to the Phoenix police station and stated that he murdered his wife.  Communications Officer at the Phoenix SAPS, Captain Louise Naidoo said, “Members then went out to Landbury Place in Eastbury to verify whether what the suspect said was the truth or not. The member then came back to the station and reported to the detectives that the suspect did murder his wife by slitting her throat. The deceased a sixty-nine-year-old female was bedridden and the suspect did everything for her. Motive is unknown at this stage and investigations are continuing”.
