A young woman, her husband, and sister were allegedly shot during an armed robbery in the couple’s home in southern Johannesburg over the weekend.
The couple, aged 23 and 46, respectively, were shot dead during the incident and left the sister, 27, seriously injured.
Capt. Police spokesperson Nokulunga Dube said two armed suspects gained access to the yard of a house in Kibler Park at about 11 pm on Saturday, after which one suspect entered the home while the other waited outside.
According to Dube, the suspect inside the home threatened the three victims and demanded cash after which he allegedly shot them. Two people were fatally wounded while the third was rushed to a hospital.
ER24 spokesman Ross Campbell said paramedics were called to the scene at about 23:04 where they found the man’s body with the injured sister in the home.
His wife’s body was found outside the house.
Campbell said all three victims sustained gunshot wounds. The couple was pronounced dead at the scene and the sister was rushed to a hospital for medical treatment.
Police are investigating a murder case.
