A Port Elizabeth man was shot at the apartment at least six times with a shotgun. Trenton Jerome Bain, 51, was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to police, the couple wanted to go to bed shortly before midnight on Wednesday when they heard a noise at the front door of their apartment in the backyard of a Malabar home.
As Bain approached to investigate, a shot was fired through the door and he was hit.
Four men allegedly stormed into the apartment and fired several shots at him with a shotgun before driving away in a white Volkswagen Golf.
Bain’s fiancé was not injured, but she was too traumatized Wednesday night to make a statement.
Col. Police spokeswoman Priscilla Naidu says so far, nothing appears to have been stolen. Police did not want to speculate on the motive for the attack, saying all possibilities were being investigated.
Naidu says anyone who can assist the police in their investigation or search for the four men can detect detectives. Call Mario Malgas on 082 442 1816.
