A man believed to be in his late 30s has suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his arm, shoulder, back and chest in a shooting incident outside Kimberley’s Magistrates Court earlier today.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at 16:30 to find the area cordoned off by the South African Police Services and another private EMS in attendance. Our Advanced Life Support paramedic took over the treatment of the critically injured patient. Five gunshot wounds were counted, with two to the back and one each to the shoulder, arm and chest. The patient was stabilised on-scene using Advanced Life Support interventions before being transported to hospital for further care.
The details of the incident and who committed the crime are unknown to ER24, but SAPS were on the scene for further investigations.
