Lephalale – A suspected farm attacker was shot dead, while several others are still missing after they attacked an elderly couple at a farm in Lith outside Lephalale, Limpopo.

Police said four men broke into the farmhouse on Wednesday night and tied up a 73-year-old man and his 58-year-old. They stole the man’s rifles and other items before fleeing.

“During the process the victims managed to untie themselves and the farmer shot at… [the] fleeing suspects,”  said Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

One suspect, aged around 20, was shot dead. The group dropped the stolen rifles and a bag, but made off with a cellphone. Ngoepe said police launched a manhunt to find the other suspects.
