Pupil shot and killed

Excellent Nyiko Mashaba was shot and killed in cold blood presumably, by thieves who were after his cellphone.
According to Bushbuckridge SAPS, the victim’s body was found in a pool of his own blood by a security guard yesterday (19.08) morning.
The victim was a grade 12 pupil at the WEM school Bushbuckridge and lived in the nearby lodgings during school days.
The school building is close to the Bushbuckridge municipality head offices and is surrounded by old buildings.
The buildings are said to belong to the provincial department of public works.
There is also a busy tavern nearby, Ga Joas.
The old buildings next to the school are depilated and are said to be harbouring nyaope addicts who go there to get their fix.
It is not clear whether the killer(s) was only after the deceased belongings.
Bushbuckridge SAPS would not give us more information on the details surrounding the murder of the young scholar beyond that investigations are still ongoing.
We wanted to know how the killer(s) gained entry into the room? Whether the deceased stayed alone in the lodgings and whether there were any possible witnesses?
The suspected motive for the murder is robbery.
