A 47-year-old businessman was shot dead in Mossel Bay last night.
Police spokesperson, sergeant Kappie Kapp says the incident happened at around 20:45 in Gubayo Street, KwaNonqaba.
Kapp said eyewitnesses told police that the victim was at his business premises when two men approached him and made enquiries about trailer repairs.
He said the suspects then pulled out firearms and fired several shots at the victim.
The man was taken to a Mossel Bay hospital where he passed away a short while later.
His identity is being withheld until his next of kin have been informed.
