Johannesburg woman shot by her boyfriend, he then commits suicide

The Johannesburg police reported a case of attempted murder that left a woman in critical condition. The episode occurred in Fourways, in Johannesburg north, on Tuesday morning after a jealous man had shot his ex-girlfriend right through her car’s window.

Apparently, only then did he realize what he had just done and shot himself after fleeing the scene. A rescue service crew found his dead body near Fourways Mall.

“The woman was driving on the corner of Cedar Road and Cedar Avenue West in Fourways,” the police spokesperson captain Mavela Masondo said.

Based on Masondo’s words, ‘the woman’s boyfriend approached her at the intersection and shot her twice in the upper body. He said the woman was taken to the nearby hospital in a serious condition’.

“He committed suicide as he shot himself inside the car,” Mavela Masondo claimed.

His motive remains unclear. The police started an investigation.
