Tomburke police in Lephalale have launched a manhunt for the killers of a 57-year-old tomatoes farm manager.
He was shot and lethally injured on Wednesday night by unknown attackers.
Police Spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the incident happened at Dale farm, near Tomburke outside Lephalale.
“According to the information, the farm manager was resting together with his 55-year-old accomplice when an unknown suspect brandishing a firearm went into their home,” said Mojapelo.
He said the suspect shot the couple, instantly killing the farm chief and harming his partner.
The other suspect, also outfitted with a gun, continued to the farm owner’s house in the vicinity and when the mutts woofed, his 34 year son turned out to investigate and was shot by the suspect and got harmed on the thigh.
Mojapelo said the harmed man figured out how to get over into the house.
“The 57-year-old farmer turned out and shot toward the suspects who at that point fled from the scene,” said Mojapelo.
Mojapelo said the farm owner, his son and the other casualty may not be named at this stage.
Police investigations are proceeding.
