Popular footballer shot dead 


CITIZENS COMPASSFormer South Africa junior international Luke Fleurs has been killed in a carjacking in Johannesburg, police revealed on Thursday.

The 24-year-old was shot in the chest at a gas station Wednesday night.

It is understood that the assailants drove off in Fleurs’ vehicle.

While waiting to be served by the attendant, he was confronted by two armed males,” police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Mavela Masondo, told reporters.

Masondo confirmed that no arrests had been made.

Fleurs played every minute for South Africa at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2021, and that same year he was called up to the senior team for World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia, though he did not make it off the bench and was uncapped.
