2 dead in another suspected hit in Woodhurst

Woodhurst Hit

While details were sketchy on Friday morning, police sources told the Daily News that the shootings had all the hallmarks of a well-executed hit.

Mystery surrounds the shooting of two men who were assassinated on Woodhurst Drive in Chatsworth on Thursday night.

On Thursday night, police were called out to Woodhurst Drive where they found two men dead in a Toyota Hilux bakkie and another wounded nearby. Nothing appeared to be taken from the men leading many, including detectives probing the incident to believe the murders were a hit.

It is alleged that the men were travelling in the bakkie into Chatsworth when the shooting occurred. The driver had lost control of the bakkie and it veered off the road, onto the pavement and bumped into a low wall which brought the vehicle to a halt outside a pharmacy.

Lieutenant Colonel Zwane, a KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson, said police are investigating what transpired. He said when police arrived they found one person dead in his vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head.
“The second body was found just outside the vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head. The third victim was found alive a few meters away from the vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head,” Zwane explained.

The wounded man was rushed to a hospital for treatment. Two counts of murder and attempted murder were opened at Chatsworth police station. Zwane said the motive for the attack was unknown. Police did not say if the men were found with any weapons and who the bakkie belonged to.

 A source said the men could have driven out of the Chatsmed Hospital, on the same road, after visiting hours had come to an end and a gunman had been waiting for them outside.
Local community policing sub-forums in Chatsworth said people interpreted the incident wrongly and spread false messages on social media platforms saying the attack was related to a hijacking gone wrong.
