A Kwazakhele man was found lying in a pool of blood inside his Vakaza Street home’s bedroom yesterday.
Police said the 35-year-old man died from a gunshot wound to the back of the head.
Police spokesman Constable Mncedi Mbombo said the man’s 16-year-old brother, who was inside the house but in a different bedroom, told police he did not hear any gunshots during the night.
Several spent cartridges were found on the bed.
Mbombo said the motive was unknown at this stage.
The identity of the man has not yet been revealed.
