Biker shot dead in road rage incident
« on: February 14, 2014, 08:15:28 am »
Just heard on 702 that a biker has been shot dead in a road rage incident on Madibongwe road in Randburg! Apparently the traffic was slow and the biker and motorist had some kind of argument and the biker stopped and got off his bike and went to talk to the guy - and now I am not 100% sure if the biker pulled a gun first but apparently he walked back to his bike and the motorist shot him twice. ( My facts are here say from the radio and I am sure that news story's will surface soon with the proper facts...)

Wow man guy's be careful out there...

Scene is 1km from my office. Not Boundary rd though, rather the next road as you go towards the N1. Malibongwe and surrounding roads are screwed with traffic.
May the bridges I burn light the way...

Biker wounded the motorist, motorist fired back. That's what I can pick up from twitter
