While not much information has been released at this stage due to ongoing investigations, Shawn Herbst, the media liaison officer for Netcare 911, said: “Reports from the scene indicate that the 50-year-old man, believed to have been a pastor, was shot in the head.”

A Netcare 911 emergency care practitioner assessed the patient, who was found in a critical condition.

“A full advanced life support resuscitation was initiated, however, the patient’s condition rapidly deteriorated and he sadly succumbed to his injuries,” concluded Herbst.
