'Hero' dad shot in front of his family

September 21 2007 at 08:13AM

Two young children watched as their father and grandmother were shot
in a brazen robbery in their Scottburgh home on Thursday night.

Marius Odendaal was one of the first on the scene. "Neighbours heard
gunshots and I went to the house. It happened right in front of his
family and two young children."

The man died at the scene, while his mother-in-law was being treated
in Scottburgh hospital. "He died as a hero, his little son was the
first to come in contact with the intruders. He jumped up and tried to
protect his family," Odendaal said.

"It appears that two men barged through the front door. When they saw
the family they just started shooting." - Mercury Reporter
