Witness in Kinnear case targeted in a drive-by shooting


A key witness in the murder of the Anti-Gang Unit (AGU), Lieutenant Colonel Charl Kinnear has been targeted in a drive-by shooting at his home on Monday night.

At around 21:00 on Monday a key witness, identified as Bradley Goldblatt, was a victim of a drive-by shooting by an unknown gunman at his home in Highlands North, Johannesburg.

According to News24, Goldblatt confirmed the shooting but would not make any further comments concerning matter.

The shooting comes on the eve of the bail application of ex-rugby player Zane Killian who thus far is the only suspect in the murder of Lieutenant Colonel Charl Kinnear.

News24 also reports that the 39-year-old ex-rugby player has been in custody for nearly two months and is expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate court in Cape Town on Tuesday – after a series of postponed court appearances.

Goldblatt, an ex-police officer, operated a company called 1Track Solutions which sold shadowy cellphone tracking technology. It is with the help of this technology that Killian’s movements were tracked.

Just last week, Goldblatt stated in an interview with the publication that he lives in fear after receiving deaths threats, and that he also feared for the lives of his wife and child.

No one was harmed in the shooting.

Police spokespersons were not available for commentary on the matter at the time of publishing, News24 reports.

VK News previously reported on the ongoing case and charges against Zane Killian.
