Woman and six-year-old daughter shot at and wounded

On Wednesday, a woman (29) and her daughter were wounded after unknown gunmen fired shots into their home situated in Heidedal, Bloemfontein.

Around 23H00 the owner of the house went to investigate why somebody was shining a bright light onto the house. He saw a gunman outside and immediately ran back into the house, telling the occupants to lie down.

“Shortly thereafter, several shots were fired at the house and the residents,” said Sgt. Fikiswa Matoti, provincial police spokesman. The woman and child were wounded in the foot and taken to the hospital.

Matoti said police do not know the motive for the attack.

It is also unclear how many people were involved in the incident and what make of car they got away.

Police are investigating two counts of attempted murder.

Nobody has been arrested in connection with the incident.
