Barman, 37 shot and killed

A 37- year-old barman was shot and killed outside the premises of Woodlands Sports Club in Durban on Monday when four armed men approached him, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks said.

"It is believed that one of the armed suspects carrying an AK-47 rifle opened fire on the man, fatally wounding him. The men then fled on foot without taking anything from the bar," he said.

Wicks said the barman had been walking in the courtyard when he was gunned down. - Mhlaba Memela
