Bloemfontein - A Nigerian man was shot dead after a high-speed car chase through Bloemfontein's streets, Free State police said on Thursday.
The chase ended in Oranjesig when the victim, 43-year-old Chuhudu Obed Obi, lost control of his car and crashed into the gate of a house around 19:00 on Wednesday, police spokesperson Chaka Marope said.
One of the men who had been chasing Obi got out of his car, walked over to the injured man - who was trapped in his car - and shot him several times.
When police arrived at the scene, after being called by the home owner, they found Obi dead.
He had been shot five times in the stomach, once in the neck and once in the left shoulder.
Police found five empty cartridges on the ground at the accident scene, and one inside the car.
Police asked for anyone with information on the murder to contact the Park Road police station.
