Man shot twice in the head in Hillbrow

 

The body of an unknown man with two bullet wounds in the head was discovered near a restaurant at the intersection of Claim and Smit Streets in Hillbrow.

Hillbrow police spokesperson Sergeant Mduduzi Zondo said the body was discovered at about 10pm on 9 July and the man was certified dead on the scene.

Police have launched an investigation to determine the possible motive for the murder. It is not known whether the execution-style killing was carried out by a lone gunman.
