A man has been killed and two others have been left fighting for their lives following a shooting incident in Briardene earlier.
Marshall Security responded to Chris Hani Road near the Engen service station, after reports of a shooting were recieved by our emergency contact centre.
On arrival on scene three men were found adjacent to the railway line, having sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Two of the men both aged between twenty and thirty years old, were found to be in a critical condition. Advanced life support intervention was needed to stabilize them, whilst paramedics from Crisis Medical and Netcare911 worked fervently to keep them alive.
Once stabilized, an intricate rope system was devised by Ethekwini Fire And Rescue Services and the patients were lowered down a steep embankment to awaiting ambulances.
Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do to assist the third man who had sustained multiple fatal gun shot wounds and he was declared deceased on the scene.
The motive for the shooting and the facts surrounding the incident will form subject of a South African Police Services investigation.
Remember to call us IN CASE OF ANYTHING.
