A Port Elizabeth couple was shot at on Monday night – allegedly because they refused to rent out their house.
Police spokesman Captain Andre Beetge said the incident happened at about 8.30pm when three men arrived at a Nqolombo Street house and asked about renting a house belonging to Nomfundo Ndaleni, 58.
“An argument ensued upon which one suspect produced a fire arm and shot at the couple, injuring both. Ndaleni was wounded in her face, and her 57-year-old boyfriend was wounded in his hip. The suspects then fled the scene,” Beetge said.
“The couple was taken to Dora Nginza Hospital for medical treatment.”
A case of attempted murder has been opened at the New Brighton police station.
Anyone with information is asked to contact investigation officer Captain Jerome Mackay on 076 018 0713.
