KwaZulu-Natal police officer, his wife and brother-in-law had been shot to death in a divorced court.
Police spokesman Colonel Thembeka Mbele told News24 on Monday evening that the officer returned to his injuries upon being taken to hospital after his weapons had been towed back.
The event took place at 11:30 on Monday at the Durban Magistrates' Court.
"There was a divorce issue between the deceased and the suspect. At 11:00 am, the trial was postponed and, just before the 11:30 am, the suspect was allegedly fired for his ex-wife and brother" told the media.
Sources say Monday that the 24-year-old magistrate, who had filed for divorce, should come back to the court after the shooting, and that they confirmed the identity of the bodies.
"The topic had stopped because he was not satisfied with the terms of the divorce agreement of the husband," a source asked to remain anonymous.
"The judge asked him (and the defendant) to hire his lawyer, then he went back to the court, where he shot seven, maybe eight. One of them was when he hit himself in the head."
The couple has two children, two years old and 11 years old. Their mothers now live in Johannesburg. He flew down from Johannesburg for a divorce.
At the source, her boyfriend was in the parking garage outside. When the boyfriend saw the police and ambulances getting up, he ran to the building.
His wife and brother-in-law are between the ages of 26 and 35.
As Mbele said earlier, kendi They both died on the scene.
He was admitted to the Durban hospital.
The court was sealed on Monday for evidence to be collected.
