A 30-year-old man and his friend were allegedly targeted in a shooting outside a doctor’s room just before 6 pm. According to reports, an armed suspect approached the man and fired about five shots, causing the victim to attempt to escape by running into a passage.

However, the gunman cornered him outside the doctor’s room and fired several more shots, resulting in the victim’s death.

The doctor, who was locking his rooms at the time, was also hit by bullets and sustained a gunshot wound.

He was rushed to the hospital for treatment. The victim’s friend was also injured and transported to the hospital.

The incident report suggests that almost 10 shots were fired, and police discovered five spent cartridges outside the entrance to the doctor’s rooms. Bullet holes were also found on the doctor’s room glass doors and walls.

The gunman reportedly fled on foot, and the police are investigating the case as murder and attempted murder.

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has been contacted for comment on the matter. This incident comes just a month after another shooting in the Durban CBD, where two men were gunned down in a suspected turf war.

Darryl Manickum, 30, and Tyron Pillay, 30, were fatally wounded while seated in a blue Hyundai i10 after being confronted by gunmen.
