“On closer inspection the male, believed to be in his thirties, was found seated in the driver’s seat, having suffered fatal gunshot wounds,” Emer-G-Med spokesperson Kyle van Reenen told the Times.

“He was declared deceased on arrival,”

he added.

POLICE TO BEGIN INVESTIGATIONS

Meanwhile, van Reenen added that there are no established motives for the cold-blooded killing, and the South African Police Service (SAPS) will begin investigations.

“The motive for the shooting and the events surrounding it are unclear and will form the subject of a SA Police Service investigation,” he concluded.
