Hijackers kill stroke survivor (summary)

A man partially paralysed by a stroke was shot in front of his wife when
he could not open the passenger side door of the vehicle three gunmen
were hijacking.
Thugs shot Henry Vorster, 57, through the neck and then through his
chest moments after shooting his wife Magriet, 58, outside their Willows
townhouse complex at about 11pm.
A stroke about four years ago paralysed Vorster down his left side,
making him almost unable to walk and rendering his left arm useless.
Magriet said, "I pressed the button to open the security gate and the
next minute there was this guy next to the car. He shouted that it was a
hijacking and that we must get out of the car or he would shoot," she said.
She immediately tried to get out, but the gunman smashed the window and
fired a shot which struck her right hand. "As I got out of the car he
shot me again in the leg. I screamed at my husband to get out of the car
but he could not open the door anyway because his left side is paralysed.
"The man pulled him over the car's centre console and out of the
driver's door. They shot him in the neck, but before throwing him on the
ground they shot him through the heart," she said.
Police Inspector Mike Mbewe said police spotted the red Polo and gave chase.
"The men were arrested and charged with being in possession of a stolen
vehicle. They still need to be linked to the hijack and murder," he said.
