Johannesburg - A farm owner was shot dead and an employee wounded by eight men at the Biesieslaagte farm outside Wolmaranstad, North West police said on Thursday.
Inspector Sam Tselenyane said Jan Moolman, 37, was busy on his farm on Wednesday night, when the men appeared and shot him. He died on the scene.
A security guard Paulos Mphele, 42, who was with him at the time, was shot in his left foot. He was later taken to hospital.
The robbers drove away with Moolman's brown Toyota Land Cruiser with registration number FLP 728 NW.
"We are not sure what else was taken, we only know of the car," said Tselenyane.
Police were investigating.
