A man who is believed to have been a resident of an upmarket estate in the Featherbrooke area in Krugersdorp was shot and killed near the Spar shopping centre.

It is believed the man was travelling in his Toyota carrying a large amount of cash on Tuesday night, Krugersdorp News reported.

He was followed by two suspects in a BMW, who pulled up next to him when he stopped. The suspects approached him and shot him while he was still in the vehicle.

It is understood that the suspects emptied their firearms into the man, firing shot after shot, killing him instantly. He was declared dead on the scene.

It is not yet clear whether or not the perpetrators took the victim’s money before they fled the scene.

More details of the incident will be released shortly.
