“He was shot in the head around 9.40am,” said Warrant Officer November Filander.

The man, from Delft, was about to appear in a dagga-related case but it was unclear if he was an accused or a witness.

“He was about to enter the building when occupants of a green Audi A4 fired shots,” said Filander.

“We don't know if they aimed directly at him as there were other people there.”

The man was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

On Monday, an Inkatha Freedom Party supporter was shot dead outside the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court in KwaZulu-Natal in front of police and journalists.

A man was arrested at the scene and is due to appear in the same court on Wednesday. - Sapa
