KwaZulu-Natal police are investigating charges of attempted murder after a motorist and his friend were shot on Thursday night in Wentworth, Durban.

Both the motorist and his passenger sustained gunshot wounds. The comedian reportedly drove himself to hospital for medical attention.

Police did not reveal the identity of the motorist, however IOL reported that he was a Durban comedian who was allegedly shot in a case of mistaken identity.

A community activist told the publication that the shooting was linked to alleged gang wars.

The comedian is said to be stable, while his friend is in a “serious condition”.
