Musa Tshabalala, pictured, is disappointed after his close brush with death on Saturday when he got shot twice during a hijacking.
To rub salt into his fresh wounds, said Tshabalala, the police returned the car to his house with the hijacker's gun cartridges still inside.
Speaking from his hospital bed, Tshabalala, 28, said: "I do not think any further investigation was done or that fingerprints were taken."
Tshabalala and his girlfriend went to a filling station in Meadowlands, Soweto, when a gunman "entered the back door and forced me to drive to a nearby secluded spot, where he shot me in the left arm".
The hijacker could not start the car and shot Tshabalala in the arm again.
"He took our cellphones, my car keys and a R20 note. He left the car behind."
Captain Lindiwe Mbatha said everything at a crime scene should be collected, including fingerprints.
