    Man, 77, allegedly guns down intruder

    Police opened a murder case after a 77-year-old man allegedly killed an intruder in his Vredehoek home early this morning.

    Police said they were investigating the incident.

    ER 24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said a man in his late 20s had allegedly broken into a home in Vredehoek at about 6am.

    "He apparently hit the 77-year-old occupant of the house over the head with a plank," said Banks.

    The elderly man retaliated and a shot was fired.

    Banks said when paramedics arrived on the scene they found the intruder dead on the doorstep.

    When the Cape Argus visited the house, the man was clearing glass from his lounge. On spotting the media, he came to the gate and said he did not want to talk about the incident.


    # A 55-year-old-man had his gun confiscated and faces a murder charge after he allegedly shot dead a burglar who attacked him in his house in Buxton Avenue, Oranjezicht earlier this year.

    WTF?? I will never understand why someone should be charged with murder when the burglar is the one at fault here. It seems so obvious to me....how can people get confused about this??

    In your mind
    B/C stupid f'ing hippie law makers would rather you try talking with the crackhead breaking into your house first......you know, to see why he is doing it, and to see if they can work things out first.


    Crap like this pisses me off too. If you don't want to get shot, don't commit a felony.

    I'd like to see a more detailed article about the incident. I'm not familiar with self-defense laws in Africa, but the guy being dead on the doorstep when the homeowner is cleaning broken glass from a window means something happened to get the guy outside. It could very well be that the guy shot him in the back while he was running away.

    Not that the bad guy didn't deserve to get shot, but even here in the States shooting someone in the back would be a hard defense to sell.

    it doesn't necessarily mean something is up. the old guy might've hauled him out there so he could start cleaning up the mess, or the guy might have lived long enough to make it to the door.
