A man has been shot dead and his wife critically injured following a mysterious shooting incident this morning in Krugersdorp West.
At around 7.50am, Sector 5’s Community Policing Forum (CPF) first aid responders were called to a house in Vorster Street to attend to a woman who was in a critical condition after being shot in the chest.
It is believed the couple’s son received a phone call from one of his parents informing him that there is trouble at home. On his arrival at the house he found his father shot dead and his mother fighting for her life when he called the CPF for help.
The woman was stablised on the scene and taken to Leratong HospitalÂ to receive emergency surgery due to her serious condition.
The bullet allegedly went through her chest and her one leg was already numb suggesting that she had a very serious injury.
It is not clear if it was a robbery at this stage as nothing was reported missing in the house.
The News spoke to one of the couple’s neighbours who claimed they did not hear any gunshots nor noticed any commotion of some sort at the time of the incident.
It is also believed that no firearm was found in the house.
