Three men arrested on Wednesday in connection with the murder of a 54-year-old man shot and killed in a shopping complex in Welkom this weekend.

Police spokeswoman Brigadier Sam Makhele said that a firearm believed that the assassination was also confiscated. Makhele said that more arrests were imminent when the police asked the trio.

Shai Mikia Mohapi was shot and killed in his vehicle while waiting for his wife at the Commando shopping complex in Welkom on Saturday night. His attack was caught on security cameras. The video has gone viral.

Mohapi approached two armed men who shot him several times at the point form. They then pulled their bodies out of the vehicle before flying in the blue VW Polo.

Mohapi died on stage and his vehicles were later discovered abandoned in Steyn Street in Welkom.

The men will arrive soon before the court.
