One man has been killed and two others critically injured this evening after an apparent shooting incident on Kenya Street in Cosmos City, North of Johannesburg.
Numerous vehicles from ER24 and Provincial services arrived on the scene and found a heavy local authority presence.
Upon closer inspection, paramedics found one man, believed to be in his 30s, lying on the pavement in a small pool of blood.
The man was immediately assessed and found to have sustained a gunshot wound to his chest and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the man and he was declared dead on the scene.
Shortly after attending to the deceased, paramedics were called for a further two more patients found down the road.
Paramedics assessed the men, both in their 30s, and found that one man had sustained several gunshot wounds while the second man had sustained a stable wound to his shoulder.
Paramedics immediately treated the patients and provided them with advanced life support interventions.
Once treated, the patients were transported by Provincial services to Helen Joseph Hospital for urgent treatment.
Local authorities were on the scene to conduct an investigation into the cause of the shooting.
