As reported by Jacaranda News, the 37-year-old man was collecting a pupil from school. He was approached by the suspects, who fired several shots at him.

The man, whose identity has not yet been revealed, was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his wounds. Police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said he “was certified dead upon arrival at the hospital.” He added:

“So far, a case of murder has been opened, and the motive of the incident is unknown at the moment. The police are calling for anyone with the information to come forward.”

The Reza Crime Network posted a photo of the vehicle, a Volkswagen Golf, and confirmed that “one victim was shot.” According to the network, students and parents had to “seek cover from bullets.”

A user on Twitter, Herman Van Eeden, remarked that it “doesn’t look like the type of car hijackers look for. A possible hit again?” Sizwe Malinga added:

“Criminals are [getting] more brave now. Hits are coming more and more, even in broad daylight.”

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi also shared the news on Twitter. He simply said a man was shot dead outside the primary school, without providing additional information.

As reported by Sowetan Live, the incident took place shortly after 14:00, according to an alleged eyewitness. The story is still developing, and we will share updates as and when more information becomes available.
