Louis Trichardt - A man accused of shooting two nurses at the Vyeboom clinic, in Louis Trichardt, appeared in the Vuwani Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Limpopo police said.

The case against Edison Bila, 38, was postponed until March 27, said Colonel Ronel Otto.

“He is facing charges of armed robbery and attempted murder after his arrest on Friday night,” she said.

On Friday morning, a man arrived at the clinic wearing a balaclava. He fired two shots at the floor, forcing the clinic security guards to flee.

He took off his balaclava, entered the clinic, and went to a consultation room where he shot a nurse twice in the stomach. In another consultation room, he shot a nurse in the arm.

He took a set of car-keys and four cellphones and fled in a nurse's Volkswagen Polo.

Police arrested Bila later in the day. - Sapa
