Durban man wounded in shootout with suspected house robbers



Police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane said that a group of gunmen had stormed a home, holding up the owner at gunpoint.

"Once they were inside they accosted the owner and they took items of value, including four watches.

"When the neighbor noticed the car, I came to investigate and the men fired on him. He was armed and returned fire, "Zwane said.

It is believed that the man may have wounded his attackers as he loosed off safe from shotgun fire.

Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson said the man was still shallow wounds and was in a stable condition.

This incident follows the fatal shooting of a man in Musgrave Avenue on Tuesday night, a bloody end to what is believed to have been a hijacking gone awry. While police were still busy processing that crime scene, a gang of suspected robberies opened fire on a security guard in Morningside's Hollander Crescent.

Zwane said that no arrests had been made yet.
