Two suspects in the triple murder of the Sham family, have been shot dead in Durban, police said today. Superintendent Jay Naicker said it was clear "both men were prepared to die rather than hear their fate in a court of law".Top Durban attorney 56-year-old Naren Sham, his wife Meera, and their son Kavir, 20, were found killed in their home on September 5. Durban organised crime unit police arrested two suspects separately yesterday.One suspect was arrested in Umlazi yesterday morning, while the second was arrested in Umgeni Road later in the day. During questioning, Ishmael Sandile Kinglock agreed to point out exhibits and while doing so pulled out a 9mm pistol and opened fire on police, said Naicker. Police returned fire, fatally wounding 28-year-old Kinglock, a former employee of Naren Sham.At 5pm, the second suspect Musa Qwabe, 28, was arrested. Naicker said the man was taken to the Sham family home to "conduct a pointing out of the crime scene... when he grabbed hold of the firearm" of one of the policemen. There was a struggle for possession of the firearm in which Qwabe was shot. "The boldness of both men is clear... from their actions yesterday as well as on the night of the murders," said Naicker. "We are glad that none of our officers was injured". -
