WINDHOEK, 04 OCT (NAMPA) - A taxi driver was severely wounded in Windhoek’s Havana informal settlement during the wee hours of Wednesday by suspects who refused to foot their taxi bill.
The shooting incident happened at about 04h00 along the Monte Christo Road, according to a daily crime report of the Namibian Police (NamPol) issued on Wednesday.
It is alleged that the two male suspects got into the taxi, but refused to pay when they reached their destination.
When the driver reportedly asked them to pay for his service, one of the men pulled out a pistol and shot the taxi driver in the neck.
The unidentified suspects fled the scene.
The police have, therefore, called on anyone with information which might lead to the arrest of the two suspects to contact the Wanaheda Police Station.
In an unrelated matter, a security guard is recovering in the Katutura Intermediate Hospital after he was shot and wounded by suspects who attempted to break into a construction site in the Windhoek city centre.
The incident took place on Tuesday at about 21h38.
No arrests have been made yet and police investigations are ongoing.
