Cape Town - A 27-year-old man was shot and wounded outside the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Cape Town police said.
“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
