A 54-year-old Moreleta Park man was shot dead at his house on Friday morning, Pretoria police said.
"The man was in his lapa at 5.30am on Friday morning, working on his laptop when an unknown number of men shot him in the head," said Inspector Duane Lightfoot.
The motive for the killing was unknown as nothing was taken from the man's house. The man's family was not harmed, said Lightfoot.
A search was on for the killers.
"There were no eyewitnesses, but a family member who was sleeping in a bedroom next to the lapa heard some noises before the shooting so we suspect there were two men," he said. - Sapa
