However, upon arriving at the colleague’s residence, he found only the man’s wife present. In a disturbing turn of events, he allegedly threatened her with the firearm.

The wife, terrified and fearing for her life, managed to inform the intruder that her husband was attending a wedding in the area. This seemingly angered the security guard, who then left the premises.

It was during this time that the neighbour who had overheard the commotion and the wife’s cries for help, decided to intervene. Seizing the opportunity, he took his own firearm and followed the security guard, determined to protect the woman from any further harm.

As the security guard reached the wedding venue, he encountered his colleague, who was also a security guard. In a fit of rage, he shot the 40-year-old man, causing him serious injuries. However, before he could carry out any further acts of violence, the neighbour swiftly responded by shooting the 29-year-old security guard.

Upon receiving reports of the shooting, the police were immediately alerted and rushed to the scene. Emergency personnel accompanied them, only to find both men lying in a pool of blood on the street, their lives tragically cut short.

The neighbour, who had acted in defense of the woman, was subsequently arrested for murder. The police have opened two cases of murder for further investigation, aiming to gather all the necessary evidence and determine the exact circumstances surrounding the incident.
