A Joburg architect has been shot and killed and his wife and son both shot by intruders who broke into their Parktown North home on Sunday night.

Julian Lap, 55, died in his home. His son Julian, 16, and his wife Marilyn were both in intensive care on Monday morning after the mother was shot in the head and the son in the chest.

Parkview police spokesperson Captain Cynthia Magoai said two intruders had entered the family's house at 6.35pm on Sunday, shot all three family members and then fled - apparently taking nothing with them.

"The father died on the scene and the woman and son have been taken to hospital, where I understand she is in a critical condition but the son is stable," Magoai said on Monday morning.

Police were on Monday morning on the hunt for the two killers, and were investigating the motive for the violent attack.
