An attempted murder case is being investigated following a shooting at a traffic department in Wetton.

The suspect’s believed to have been upset after he was told that he didn’t have the necessary documents to finalise business at the Hillstar Traffic Department on Wednesday.

Security guards intervened and the suspect went to his vehicle.

He later returned with an airgun and shot one of the security guards.

The City’s Traffic service’s Maxine Bezuidenhout says the Hillstart Driving License and Testing Centre was closed for the remainder of that day.

“The security guard received medical treatment on site and was taken to hospital for follow-up treatment. The suspect’s identity is known, and the matter is being followed up. Employee support is being provided to traumatized staff members who witnessed the altercation.”
