Shortly after 01H10am, 27 June 2018 – Netcare 911 responded to a shooting in Pretoria East, Gauteng.

On arrival Netcare 911 and other emergency medical services attended to a female patient with a gunshot wound to the chest as well as a man with a gunshot wound to the head, both aged between 35-years and 45-years.

It is alleged that the husband shot his wife before turning the gun on himself. The female patient sustained serious injuries and was transported to hospital for further medical care. Paramedics assessed the man and found that he had already succumbed to the fatal gunshot and unfortunately nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead on scene by Netcare 911.

The exact circumstances were not known to our paramedics but local authorities were on scene. The incident and preceding events will form part of a police investigation.
