Police are investigating a hijacking and murder after a 27 year old taxi driver from Lotus River was shot dead yesterday.

He was taken to Muizenberg Hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.

Inspector Stephen Knapp says five armed men hijacked a taxi belonging to Retreat taxis association. The driver, after being threatened with fire arms managed to jump out of a moving taxi. He broke his right leg in the process.

A short while, the same taxi pulled up to the one which had passengers in it. The suspects discharged an unknown amount of shots. The shots caught the driver who was rushed the hospital, Knapp said.
