A 31 year-old prison warder Jacques Horne on guard duty, was shot dead and another injured in an attack by gunmen at Cape Town's Groote Schuur Hospital to free a prisoner, apparently a member of a group of cash-in-transit heist robbers that was allegedly led by Given Raymond Peete. The men sped to Woodstock in a silver grey Toyota Corolla after which they dumped the car and hijacked another family from Port Elizabeth.
