A middle-aged man was shot dead outside Ocean Basket in White River, Mpumalanga on Saturday evening.
According to eyewitnesses, the victim got involved in a heated argument with a man outside the restaurant. The man apparently then pulled out a firearm and shot the victim dead.
Kyle van Reenen, spokesperson for Emer-G-Med, says paramedics were called to the incident outside the restaurant around 19:30. However, upon their arrival, paramedics found that the victim had already succumbed to his gunshot wounds.
Some media reports claimed that the incident took place in the restaurant itself, but Andre Spyridis, owner of Ocean Basket in White River, says that this is completely untrue. No customers or staff from the restaurant were also involved in the incident.
“Ocean Basket has absolutely nothing to do with the incident, it was just a coincidence that the tragedy happened outside the restaurant.”
According to Van Reenen, the suspect was arrested.
Rhewal has approached the police for comment and is still waiting for a response.
