Johannesburg - A 39-year-old man was shot dead and another man and a woman were injured in a shooting on Wednesday morning in S.S. Segwane Street in Moseleke East, Katlehong. 

Shawn Herbst, spokesperson for Netcare 911 which responded to an emergency call, said when paramedics arrived they found that one of the males had sustained fatal injuries and was declared deceased on the scene.

"The other male and female sustained serious injuries and required Advanced Life Support intervention to stabilise them. Once treated all the patients were transported by various ambulance services to hospital for further treatment," said Herbst.

Police were on the scene investigating.
