South African farmer dies in shooting

An, as yet unnamed, farmer in the hamlet of Cloetesville in South Africa's Western Cape was shot and killed during a shoot-out with a group of men who had broken into his house.

The attack took place when he went investigate a noise at 03:00 am this morning (Friday 18th Feb) and confronted two armed men in his home, at which point a shoot out occurred.

The 44 year old victim, he succumbed as a result of a gunshot wound to his chest. Mercifully his wife and two children escaped the ordeal unscathed.

The intruders left the property empty-handed though police believe a blood trail on the scene suggests one of them could have been injured.
