Off-duty shooting || speak about being in the wrong place at the wrong time

No arrests have been made in the shooting death of off-duty paramedic Sibusiso Zondi outside a Pietermaritzburg hospital.

Captain Nqobile Gwala, a KZN police spokeswoman, stated that on November 18, shortly after 2 p.m., police got a report of a shooting outside the hospital.

"When they arrived on the site, they discovered a 30-year-old male victim lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso." A silver vehicle with three male occupants is said to have opened fire on the deceased before fleeing the area in their getaway vehicle.

"The motive for the attack is unknown." Plessislaer SAPS has launched an inquiry into a murder case."

Mi7 National Group, where Zondi served as a basic life support paramedic, praised him as committed in a Facebook tribute.

"We at Mi7 National Group report the unfortunate loss of one of our brothers, Mi7 Emergency Medical Services basic life support medic Sibusiso Zondi, with a heavy heart and teary eyes."

"He was off duty – a rare occurrence for Sbu, who was so dedicated to saving lives every day – and on his way to the hospital for a doctor's appointment when he was allegedly accosted by a group of gunmen and shot multiple times."

"By the time additional medics arrived on the scene after hearing gunshots from within the hospital grounds, Sbu had already passed."
