A shooting occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning in Tzaneen CBD leaving one person in a critical condition.
According to Captain Joseph Moseri, Tzaneen SAPS Spokesperson, “A gay man pretending to be a ‘night lady’ was standing at the corner in Skirving Street when he was approached by a client. When the client realised that the prostitute was a man, he demanded his money back.”
Moseri reports that when the sex worker refused to refund the client, the client pulled out a pistol and wanted to shoot.
It is reported that the victim began to run away and was shot in the back by the suspect.
The victim is currently in a critical condition in the Provincial Hospital in Polokwane.
Police investigations are continuing and no arrests had been made.
