Africa-Press – South-Africa. Police have arrested someone in connection with the death of a security guard, who was shot after an argument with a visitor at a block of flats in Point, Durban, on Sunday night.
“Information at police’s disposal suggests that a group of people who were visitors at one of the flats were involved in an argument with a man carrying a firearm. A security officer reportedly tried to intervene; however, he was shot,” KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda said.
Emer-G-Med spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said paramedics responded to the shooting at the high-rise residential building at around 22:00 on Sunday.
“Reports from the scene are that a tussle allegedly broke out between a security officer and a guest, resulting in the security officer sustaining a gunshot wound,” he said.
Van Reenen added that his colleagues took the guard to nearby Addington Hospital, but he was pronounced dead on arrival.
One person was arrested, according to Netshiunda.
The person will appear in court soon.
