A Serbian national killed in Rivonia 'may be part of a turf war'

Police have confirmed that a man shot in an apparent attempted hit in Rivonia this week was a Serbian national.

The 49-year-old man was wounded in a drive-by shooting near a Sasol petrol station.

He was shot twice in the arm and was then taken to the hospital.

Speaking to Xolani Gwala, New24 specialist reporter Mandy Wiener says not much information is available at this stage.
