A man was gunned down on Wednesday
while transporting his son and two other children to school.
It’s reported that multiple
shots were fired at the white Toyota Fortuner the father was driving.

Indian male driver and found that he had sustained multiple gunshot wounds to
his head and body. Due to the extent of his injuries he died at the scene,” RUSA

Fortuner was approaching a single lane steel bridge when a red VW Polo stopped
next to it and the occupants opened fire at the driver before the gunmen sped
off towards the Verulam CBD.

13,11 and 8 were seated behind the driver and were not injured.
Over twenty-one 9mm spent
cartridges were recovered at the scene, the motive for the shooting is unknown
