Farm murder: 70-year-old shot dead in KZN



A 70-year-old man was shot dead, and a woman jumped out of a window during a farm attack in Ocean View near Rocky Bay, south of Scottburgh in KwaZulu-Natal.

The incident occurred Monday around 3:30 p.m.

Police say in a statement the woman was home alone when four armed assailants arrived there. They demanded cash and firearms. The woman was taken to the house’s top floor by one of the attackers, while the other three looted the house.

The woman heard her 70-year-old friend’s car stop outside the house. Out of fear, she jumped out of one of the windows and ran towards the road to seek help.

When police arrived, they found her friend dead in the kitchen with gunshot wounds. It is not known what exactly happened to the friend after the woman went to seek help.

The identity of the deceased was not disclosed.

The attackers got away with two firearms, a laptop and cellphones.
