Port Elizabeth – A man was shot in the leg on Tuesday evening for allegedly not having a size 10 spanner in his possession.
Port Elizabeth police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Alwin Labans, said the man, aged 59, and his son, 33, were standing outside their home in Sydenham when two unknown men approached them.
“The one man asked the father if he had a size 10 spanner on him. When the man replied he did not, the suspect drew a firearm and shot him in the upper leg,” Labans said.
Labans said the men then fled the scene.
Labans added that a case of attempted murder was being investigated, but no arrests had been made yet.
