A 19-year-old male and a female in her 20s were shot and killed on the side of Putfontein Road by unknown men after their bakkie apparently ran out of diesel.

ER24 paramedics and another service were on the scene at 12:30. The female was found inside the cab with a single gunshot wound. The young male was found outside the vehicle having suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Both showed no signs of life and were declared dead on arrival.

Two workers who were travelling with them fled the scene, but returned once Emergency Services arrived. They alleged that a group of men had approached them after they had stopped on the side of Putfontein Road – where the bridge crosses over the N12.

The South African Police Services were on the scene for further investigations.
