A man was shot and killed by gunmen who forced their way into the home he shared with his wife and their two children on Monday night.

The deceased has been identified as 37-year-old technician Lincoln Blair Muir, otherwise called Fat Head of Kew district, Hanover.

Reports are that at about 11:45 pm, Muir and his common law wife, 36, and their two children - a 10-year-old and a five-year-old - were at home when they were woken up by gunmen who kicked open the backdoor and entered the house.

The gunmen opened fire, hitting Muir, who fell outside the house. They pumped more shots into the technician before escaping on foot.

Muir was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Hanover police are yet to determine a motive for the killing.
