A 31-year-old Shebeen owner was shot to death during a home invasion in Osindisweni, KZN in the early hours of Tuesday.

When RUSA medic arrived on the scene they were directed to a room where the man was found lying on a sofa.
The man had a gunshot wound on his head and chest and was pronounced dead as he showed no signs of life.
It is said that the victim was asleep in his room along with his girlfriend when 3 suspects entered the room through a window and forced them to lay down and open the door.
The suspects then fired shots at the passage when the victim’s brother refused to open the door.
