Police opened a murder case after a 77-year-old man allegedly killed
an intruder in his Vredehoek home early this morning.

Police said they were investigating the incident.

ER 24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said a man in his late 20s had
allegedly broken into a home in Vredehoek at about 6am.

"He apparently hit the 77-year-old occupant of the house over the head
with a plank," said Banks.

The elderly man retaliated and a shot was fired.

Banks said when paramedics arrived on the scene they found the
intruder dead on the doorstep.

When the Cape Argus visited the house, the man was clearing glass from
his lounge. On spotting the media, he came to the gate and said he did
not want to talk about the incident.

# A 55-year-old-man had his gun confiscated and faces a murder charge
after he allegedly shot dead a burglar who attacked him in his house
in Buxton Avenue, Oranjezicht earlier this year.
