A woman was shot and injured in an attack at her home in Laezonia north of Johannesburg on Tuesday night, said her father.

Gawie Joubert said his daughter, Huibrecht Joubert, 38, arrived at her home at Laezonia plots on the R511 near Diepsloot at about 6pm.

"She came back from work last night and opened the door. One of them was in the house," said Joubert on Wednesday.

He said Huibrecht ran back to her car and tried to escape, but another attacker shot her twice through the car window, hitting her in the chest and abdomen.

Her husband and two sons arrived home shortly afterwards. They were not hurt.

Huibrecht was taken to Unitas hospital in Pretoria.

Unitas spokesperson Kate Cvitanic said on Wednesday that she had been operated on.

"She is in a critical but stable condition in our ICU."

Johannesburg police had no information on the incident. - Sapa
