Angry residents stormed a shop in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, on Sunday morning after the owner allegedly shot a man in a dispute over change.
The shop in the Green Point area of the sprawling suburb, which a Somali man owns, was looted at around 10:00, said Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut.
"Community members claimed that the owner of the shop shot a man and fled the area. This victim was traced to a local hospital in the area where he is being treated," he said.
Police were investigating cases of attempted murder and malicious damage to property.
