A 23-year-old man is appearing before the Durban Magistrates Court on Thursday for a double murder and two counts of attempted murder. It is alleged that on 8 August 2021 at Mpungushe Road in Quarry Heights, four people were in a house when two men kicked the door open.
Captain Nqobile Gwala of KwaZulu-Natal said the suspects shot two men, one died at the scene and the other died on arrival at the hospital. “A bullet grazed the third victim while the fourth escaped unharmed.”
Gwala added that the detectives immediately initiated an investigation and followed all possible leads regarding the suspects involved in the case. “On Tuesday night, the suspect was traced and arrested at KwaMashu Hostel. More arrests are imminent as the investigation unfolds.”
