Colonel Donald Mdluli said empty cartridges from a rifle and a pistol were found at the scene.

“The motive for the shooting is unknown at this stage and will form part of the police investigation. Preliminary investigation suggests that the vehicle that was allegedly used by the suspects could have been the one that was reportedly stolen or hijacked in Bushbuckridge last month,” said Colonel Mdluli,
