A man had been shot and murdered in the driveway of his home last night in Alberton.

Marius Pretorius, 45, arrived at his house at 20:00, when a car parked behind his vehicle.

Police spokesperson Andy Pieke says it is believed that he saw the men when he got out of his car. Pieke says he probably thought it was a robbery and he reversed into their vehicle.

One of the suspects fired a shot which hit Pretorius in the upper body. His wife rushed him to hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
