Woman shot dead while driving


A woman was shot dead while driving in Faerie Glen, east of Pretoria, on Tuesday morning, Gauteng police said.

“The woman (25) was driving in Manitoba Drive at 7.10am, when a motorcycle with two people on it overtook her,” said Warrant Officer Duane Lightfoot.

He said witnesses told police they heard several shots fired – presumably by the passenger of the motorcycle – and then saw the woman's car veer off the road and crash into the pavement.

Lightfoot said paramedics declared the woman dead on the scene.

It was believed that the woman had dropped her child at pre-primary school just before the shooting.

“At the moment we don't know what the motive was, but we are investigating,” Lightfoot said.

No arrests had been made by 9am. – Sapa
