Pietermaritzburg - A woman was shot dead and another was wounded in a shooting in Pietermaritzburg, paramedics in KwaZulu-Natal said on Wednesday.

The shooting occurred in Privet Road, Raisethorpe, on Tuesday night, said Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha.

When paramedics and other services arrived at the scene they found that both women had life-threatening wounds and worked to stabilise them.

One woman died on the scene and the other was taken to hospital for further treatment.

“(The) exact detail to the cause of the shooting is still speculative and will remain a subject for police investigation,” said Botha.
