Police say Ndlovu stole his friend's gun.

Police are investigating an inquest, cases of murder and theft, and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

"We are saddened by this tragic incident because innocent lives continue to be lost at the hands of men who seem to be inclined to committing acts of Gender Based Violence at any moment the relationship collapses. People experiencing relationship challenges are urged to seek assistance and desist from resorting to extreme violence," says provincial police commissioner Thembi Hadebe.
