A MAN died yesterday from gunshot wounds he suffered in the early hours of yesterday after he was shot when he broke into a warehouse in Lusaka’s Kanyama Township.
Lusaka Province Police Commissioner Charity Katanga said in an interview that the man, identified as Harrison Chisala, 18, who was with two others, broke into a warehouse belonging to Sunny Luhole, 36, of Kanyama site-and-service.
Ms Katanga said Luhole later called police and Chisala was picked and rushed to the University Teaching Hospital, where he died.
In another incident, Obed Sangwenya, 22, died after being stabbed by his friends following a misunderstanding when sharing stolen goods on December 16, 2015. Close to his body, police also found another man, who had been stabbed. The unidentified man later died at UTH.
Ms Katanga said the incident happened around 23:00 hours at a bus-stop in Kanyama Township after six suspected robbers differed over their loot.
