Ward Councillor Candidate Gunned Down In Durban

Two people have been shot dead – one of them said to be a candidate ward councillor –  in a shooting incident in Westridge Durban on Friday.

Two others were left injured after the shooting incident.

First respondents Emer-G-Med paramedics arrived on the scene just after 6 pm.

They found two males approximately 40 years of age in a Nissan Navara.

“On closer inspection, they were found to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds and were declared dead on arrival of paramedics,” said Emer-G-Med.

“Reports from the scene allege one of the deceased to be a candidate ward councillor for the area, however, these details remain speculative.

“Two other men were rushed to a nearby hospital privately for gunshot wounds prior to the arrival of paramedics and their condition is unknown.”

Police were in attendance carrying out initial investigations. There were no arrests reported.
