A message came through at around 07:30 that there had been a shooting in the Lidgetton West area in the early hours of the morning and that there was noone on scene as yet.

Due to the victim or members on scene not being AAA Response members I initially struggled to get a location and to make contact with those on scene, but once I was able to make contact we were informed that SAPS had just arrived on scene, and that the victim had been taken to hospital privately.

I then called thee victims employer who said it appeared the victim had been shot 3 times in the chest while trying to stop 3 hijackers from stealing his car.

Fortunately the victim had been taken to a nearby Hospital where he was taken straight into surgery. On following up the victim is was still in ICU and had to undergo a second surgery the following day, and our last available update was that the patient is in a stable condition.
