JOHANNESBURG - A father of three who was shot dead in front of his son at his Senderwood home on Monday night will be laid to rest at the Westpark Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon.
Shaun Lipshitz was killed in his house following a failed robbery.
While Lipshitz’s devastated family prepare to bury him, questions are still being raised around the tragedy.
Officials say two robbers broke into his home on Monday night while he and his 12-year-old son were in one of the rooms.
The 37-year-old immediately reached out for his gun.
Police say the robbers fired first and Lipshitz retaliated.
One of his relatives says he died defending his family.
“In the moment he calculated, there were two assailants on him with guns and he decided to shoot them.”
Both robbers died at the scene.
