A KwaZulu-Natal taxi boss who was shot four times in an apparent assassination attempt ran into a shop in a desperate effort to evade a group of men who had ambushed him on Tuesday.

“He was shot several times near the entrance and then ran inside the shop to try and hide. He had been inside when the manager tried to help him and the gunmen also fired on him but he wasn’t hit‚” Herbst said.

“The injured taxi owner sustained four gunshot wounds and when paramedics arrived at the scene they immediately began treating him‚” he added.

The wounded man was stabilised at the scene and transported by ambulance to a local hospital for further treatment.

Police spokespeople couldn't immediately provide details of the shooting.
