Johannesburg – An elderly farmer was shot dead at his home on the farm Doornfontein, in the Magaliesberg, on Thursday, police said.

Two men confronted the 71-year-old farmer, Simon Graff, when he went outside to investigate strange voices at 14:40, said spokesperson Solomon Sibiya.

One of them opened fire on him, fatally wounding him in his chest, he said.

A third man attacked Graff’s wife when she then went outside to find out what was going on. She was pulled inside and tied up in the kitchen.

The three men ransacked the house, taking R800 before fleeing into nearby bush.
