KZN police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda has confirmed that a man is expected to appear in court soon after he was arrested last night.
Netshiunda says the man allegedly shot and killed a security guard at a well-known holiday resort in Durban after an altercation.
He adds the security guard worked for a private security company, and was shot on Eskien Terrace Road in Point.
Netshiunda explains that information at police’s disposal suggest that a group of people – who were visitors at one of the flats – were involved in an argument with a man who was carrying a firearm.
“A security officer reportedly tried to intervene, however, he was shot and succumbed to his injuries in hospital,” he says.
Kyle van Reenen, the spokesperson for Emer-G-Med, says the incident happened around 22:00 at the residential high-rise building in the Point area.
“A tussle broke out between a security officer and a guest resulting in the security officer being shot. His colleagues rushed him to Addington Hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival,” explains Van Reenen.
Netshiunda adds a firearm with 12 rounds of ammunition was confiscated.
