Nirvana man up for murder after shooting intruder

An intruder was shot and killed after he and another man were discovered in a Nirvana resident's home on Thursday.

POLOKWANE – This was confirmed by Westenburg police spokesperson, Capt Mohlaka Mashiane, who said the man was taking a nap when he was woken by a noise.

He went to investigate and found two men in his house, trying to rob him.

“An argument ensued between the resident and intruders and there was a struggle during which one of the intruders was shot and killed.

“The other intruder fled the scene,” Mashiane said.

He said the matter was still being investigated; while no case of attempted robbery has been opened, one of murder was opened.

A neighbour, who did not wish to be named, told Review Bonus there have been several attempted burglaries in the area recently, with no one having been apprehended so far.

Mashiane said police and community policing forum patrols have been stepped up lately.
