The 38-year-old woman sustained a gunshot wound. Her partner managed to remain unharmed and immediately called emergency services.

The suspect was arrested for attempted murder, but he claimed he was aiming for a hippo, according to TimesLIVE.

During the arrest, police confiscated a revolver, a pistol, two air guns and two rifles. He is expected to appear in Lephalale’s magistrate’s court on 28 April.
