A woman has collapsed and died after she witnessed a shooting incident at Promenade Building on Samora Machel Road in Nelspruit on Thursday.

Paramedics were called to assist and treat the woman, unfortunately after some time, the woman was declared dead.”
Meiring added that they found the man lying on the pavement, surrounded by a number of onlookers and local authorities.
