JOHANNESBURG – A task team has been set up to investigate the killing of two people on the Putfontein bridge in Benoni. 

Two youngsters, aged 19 and 23, were shot and killed on Sunday after their car ran out of diesel.

It is believed that farm workers were trying to assist the occupants, when they were approached by two men who shot at the female occupant.

A 19-year-old man tried to intervene, and was also shot. 

The attackers ran towards an abandoned mine in the area, raising suspicion they may be illegal miners.
