A man was shot with his own firearm after he became embroiled in an argument in Pinetown near Durban yesterday.
Captain Debbie O'Brien of the KwaZulu-Natal police said initial investigations showed that two men were having an argument outside a shop when one of them drew a firearm.
He was, however, disarmed by the man he intended to shoot, who in turn shot him.
The friend fled the scene of the shooting but was arrested by police shortly afterwards. - Sapa
