A security guard was fatally shot while on duty at a dam in Chatsworth, south of Durban. Garrith Jamieson, an ALS paramedic, stated that they responded to Bul Bull Drive on Monday morning after the man’s body was discovered.

"ALS Paramedics were called to the scene just after 7 am and found that the male officer in his thirties had sustained a gunshot wound to the head. Unfortunately, there was nothing paramedics could do for him, and he was declared deceased on the scene. The time of the shooting or the events leading up to the shooting are unknown. However, SAPS were in attendance and will be investigating further."
