A Famous forex trader was shot dead on Thursday afternoon in Johannesburg, in what is believed to be a love jealous by an ex lover.

The ex boyfriend,who is a taxi owner, could not bear the reality that his girlfriend has moved on, no longer in love with him. It is also suspected that he got very jealous, realizing that his ex girlfriend is in love with a rich person more than him and that person drives a multimillion rands car.

A woman and a man believed to be her boyfriend were shot dead in the latter's Ford Mustang while driving in Soweto on Wednesday. The gunman then went home and turned the gun on himself.

It has emerged that the woman was a police reservist working at the Diepkloof police station in Soweto. Her male companion, the owner of the Ford Mustang, was believed to have been a forex trader while the gunman was a taxi owner suspected to have been the woman's ex-lover.

A video taken at the scene following the incident shows a group of people surrounding the car while two bloodied bodies are slumped inside.

Nearby was a minibus taxi that was hit when the driver of the car lost control of the vehicle.

A source told a local publication, News24 the taxi driver was angry that the woman had dumped him and gotten herself a new boyfriend.

"He shot at them as they were driving in Soweto. After shooting at their car, [the driver] lost control and hit a minibus taxi. He (the shooter) then went to his parents' house in Orlando and killed himself," said the source.

Police spokesperson Colonel Athlenda Mathe said the couple was shot along Baragwanath Road in Soweto.

She said the female reservist constable, who was attached to the Diepkloof Visible Policing Unit, and a man were driving along the road when shots were fired at them.

She said the shooter then drove off and later killed himself.

He was found to have shot himself at his place of residence in Orlando East," Mathe said.

Mathe said 15 empty cartridges were found at the scene.

Although it is understood that the shooter was bitter and jealous after the police reservist allegedly cheated on him, the police said they did not want to speculate.

Mathe said police will investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

Police confirmed that they were investigating two murders and an inquest.

Killings are on a high rampage in South Africa these days and lot of cases have to do with jealous lovers.

Last month, a student at University of Fort Hare, was killed by her boyfriend whom he suspected that she was cheating on him.
