A 60-year-old man was shot and killed in Bronkhorstspruit, allegedly by his daughter's boyfriend, police said on Saturday.
Captain Simon Mashiloane said the boyfriend, 35, had a quarrel with his girlfriend, 30, at Zithobeni on Friday afternoon.
"She ran to her parents' home where her father and grandmother were sitting in the dining room.
"He followed her into the house and immediately opened fire," Mashiloane said.
Two shots were fired. The father died on the scene and the grandmother was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
The suspect was still on the run, Mashiloane said. - Sapa
