Johannesburg - Almost five months since Bedfordview father Shaun Lipshitz was gunned down in front of his 12-year-old son, the police have finally arrested three men for the crime.
On the night of January 28, two armed men got into Lipshitz’s home through a window.
The pair entered a room where Lipshitz and his young son were. Lipshitz immediately confronted the two men, managing to draw his gun.
Police said the men then opened fire on Lipshitz. In the ensuing gunbattle, the 37-year-old father was able to mortally wound the two robbers, but paid the ultimate price himself.
At his funeral, Lipshitz was honoured for protecting his son, who was not hurt during the hail of gunfire.
