Three taxi drivers were shot and wounded at the Windmill Park taxi rank in Boksburg, on the East Rand, on Wednesday, police said.
“The men were shot around 6am and were rushed to hospital in a critical condition,” said Captain Godfrey Maditsi.
Police believed the shooting was sparked by a conflict over routes between taxi associations in Dawn Park.
“Two taxi owners have been shot and killed in the area since the beginning of June and we suspect that the incidents might be connected,” he said.
An attempted murder docket had been opened at the Dawn Park police station.
Police were keeping watch in the area, Maditsi said. – Sapa
