An elderly man was shot dead and his granddaughter critically wounded as they left a bank in Alberton on Friday, paramedics said.
The man, who was in his 70s, and his 27-year-old granddaughter were getting into their car after a visit to the bank in Owl road, when unidentified gunmen opened fire on them, Netcare911 spokesman Chris Botha said.
"Paramedics arrived within minutes of receiving the call, and tragically found that the aged gentleman had passed away due to the extensive injuries that he had sustained," he said.
His granddaughter was shot in the chest and transferred to the Netcare Union hospital for the treatment. - Sapa
