Farmer kills intruder


545

A man has been shot dead while breaking into a farmhouse at Doornhoek, near Zeerust, North West police said on Thursday.

Brigadier Thulane Ngubane said a 65-year-old farmer went to investigate when his dog started barking on Wednesday night and found a man in the bedroom.

The farmer allegedly took out his gun and shot the man in the chest. He died on the scene.

“Two cases were opened, one of housebreaking and the other one of murder,” Ngubane said.

“The farmer has not been arrested as the matter will be taken to the director of public prosecutions for a decision.” - Sapa
