JOHANNESBURG - A minibus taxi driver has been shot and killed in the Johannesburg CBD, allegedly in a suspected dispute over routes.
Police say the man was sitting in his vehicle at an intersection this morning when an unidentified man approached it and fired 13 shots at the driver.
The victim's sister, who was also in the car, was taken to hospital and treated for shock while the man was declared dead on the scene.
The police's Mduduzi Zondo says, "This morning, a taxi owner was gunned down while he was sitting inside a vehicle with his sister. After the shooting, the suspect ran away. We are still looking for the suspect. We believe it [has to do with] ongoing fights within the industry."
