South Africa: Man Gunned Down Outside Workplace in Alberton

A 38-year-old Thokoza man was gunned down outside his workplace in South Crest, Alberton, at around 08:00 on Tuesday.

According to Moffat View police spokesperson Captain Jeff Phora, the man was waiting for a colleague when he was shot and killed.

"His colleagues heard gunshots from the office and they found him dead," Phora told News24.

According to Phora, it is believed that three suspects were involved and that two fired shots.

The victim was a safety officer for a construction company, Phora said.

Phora said while a "hit" cannot be ruled out, the motive for the killing is unknown and no one has been arrested.

"We appeal to any eyewitnesses to come forward with information by contacting Warrant Officer Themba Mdlalose on 082 469 4816," Phora said.
