Gunman kills factory worker


A man was shot dead and a woman seriously wounded at the Albany factory in Germiston on Thursday, Johannesburg police said.

Two workers arrived at the factory and were waiting for the electronic gate to open around 8am, when a gunman fired on them, said Sergeant Michelle Venter.

The man fired several shots at the man, killing him instantly. He then shot the woman twice before walking away.

“A double cab bakkie arrived shortly after the shooting and stopped a few metres from the scene. The man jumped into the vehicle which sped away,” said Venter.

The motive for the attack is not known.

The wounded woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

A case of murder and attempted murder was opened for investigation. - Sapa
