TRAF­FIC was brought to a stand­still on Wil­liam Ni­col Drive in Sand­ton when a man was shot dead and two oth­ers were crit­i­cally in­jured in a sus­pected drive-by shoot­ing.

Sand­ton police con­firmed that a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion had been opened af­ter four men driv­ing a dou­ble cab were shot around 3pm yes­ter­day.

Sand­ton police spokes- per­son Cap­tain Granville Meyer said the car was ap­proach­ing an in­ter­sec­tion when an un­known man al­legedly started shoot­ing at the ve­hi­cle with an AK-47.

The shooter jumped onto a mo­tor­cy­cle and rode away.

The dou­ble cab was then driven to a To­tal garage, where one of the vic­tims died, while two oth­ers were taken to hos- pital.

The shoot­ing caused a heavy back-up of traf­fic in Park­more.

The in­jured men were re­ported to be in a stable con­di­tion, and the mo­tive for the shoot­ing was un­known.
