Two people have been shot while traveling in their car on Suzuka Road in Westmead just outside of Pinetown this morning.
ALS Paramedics Gareth Jamieson says they responded to the call to find a bullet-riddled vehicle in the middle of the road.
“On arrival, Paramedics found SAPS in attendance with the area cordoned off. Paramedics found two males believed to be in their forties who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.”
“One of the patients was in a critical condition and was stabilized on scene. Due to the severity of his injuries, a decision was made to call in the Netcare911 Aeromedical Helicopter to rapidly transport the man to a level-one trauma unit for the urgent care that he required. The second man was stabilized on scene before being rushed to a nearby hospital,” said ALS Paramedics spokesperson, Garrith Jamieson.
Jamieson further stated that the entire roadway was closed off to allow emergency personnel to work as well as SAPS to investigate.
He says the motive of the shooting is not known yet and police will be investigating further.
