A Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) student, Naeman Amakali, was killed on the spot when a taxi he was in was shot at by an unidentified motorist following a confrontation on Tuesday night this week.

He was pursuing a bachelor’s degree in science health information system management at the university.

The incident happened along Hans-Dietrich Genscher Street infront of a guesthouse just after the four way stop when the taxi driver stopped in front of the car that was causing havoc in the road resulting in a confrontation.

Speaking to The Villager after the incident, Marshall Rangers Sheriff Sean Naude said the driver in the unidentified car got out and pulled out a fire arm after which he ramdomly fired 12 rounds.

The deceased had his brother in the taxi who also took a bullet in the chest and another person also got wounded.

They were rushed to the hospital.

"The guy fled the scene and is on the guesthouse's camera. They can't identify the vehicle. The brother is still in hospital. I just had a telephone conversation with him. He was shot in the chest. The other one has been released already from the hospital," said the Sheriff.
