WINDHOEK, 10 AUG (NAMPA) - No one has yet been arrested in connection with the murder of a Finnish national who was shot in his car in Windhoek on Sunday.
An unknown man allegedly shot and killed Ronni Marco Kristian Uolevi, 42, in the capital on Sunday morning at around 00h30.
Namibian Police Force (NamPol)’s Spokesperson Slogan Matheus informed Nampa upon enquiry Monday that police were working tirelessly to trace the driver of the white Volkswagen GTi Polo sedan vehicle involved in the incident.
This unknown driver allegedly fired nine rounds from his firearm after Uolevi drove into the back of his vehicle with his Land Rover Discovery sports utility vehicle in front of Jokers Pizzeria and Sports Bar in Bell Street in the Southern Industrial Area of the capital.
The driver allegedly jumped out of his car, drew his firearm and fired randomly at the deceased's car before getting back into his vehicle and driving away.
Matheus said the police are narrowing down leads in the ongoing investigation to find the suspect.
“We cannot share the information we have on the particulars of the driver. This might jeopardise our investigations,” he said.
He added that a post-mortem conducted on the deceased has not yet been completed. This will help determine how many bullets hit the deceased from the nine rounds that were fired from the firearm.
