#ATTACK: Wheel-chair bound pensioner (74) attacked & shot outside surgery in Pinetown

At 18h00 this evening, Netcare 911 paramedics received a call for a shooting outside a doctor's rooms in Warwick Road, Pinetown...

Alpha Alarms:
Reports from the scene indicate that a 74-year-old man was being pushed in a wheelchair to his vehicle by two female family members. When they got to the vehicle they were approached by unknown men with a gun, the elderly man sustained two critical gunshot wounds.
Paramedics arrived at the scene and found a doctor working on the critically wounded man; the two females were not injured. Medics worked fervently to stabilise the shot patient before medics transported him to a specialised hospital in Durban for the care that he required.
Exact detail to the cause of the shooting and preceding events will remain a subject for the South African Police to investigate.
