News of the star’s passing have sent shockwaves across the country and his grief-stricken family is struggling to come to terms with his passing. According to TshisaLive, Citi Lyts and his friends were ambushed by a group of four armed men on Monday morning while hanging out together.

Three of them were reportedly heavily armed with rifles, and two of them opened fire at Citi Lyts. The number of times he was shot at is speculated to be 8 times.

“He got shot. A VW polo came and four armed guys jumped out pointing guns at everyone.

“When they pointed the gun at Citi Lyts one of the friends tried calming the situation, saying ‘guys lets not do this, what’s going on?’ Then shots were fired at Citi, in the stomach. When he fell everyone else ran away. As they were running shots were being fired,” said a friend who wanted to remain anonymous.

Speaking to DRUM, the Mkhize spokesperson confirmed that he died exactly 12:30 AM, “They were ambushed and that is ambushed that is the best way to put it. They coupled up; four guys came out of nowhere, stopped them, and shot them in their heads. They fought as much as they can, and the guys shot them. I can’t confirm how many they were in the car yet, but this happened at Dube, Soweto,” said Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini.

“I am on my way to Jabulani Police Station now to verify if the case is opened. But by now it should be because generally if it is a murder case and someone is laying on the pavement when the police come to the scene it is automatic. We don’t know how to open up that type of case, I will follow up with the family also just to check if they have been contacted by any police officer. I want to find everything out and come back to you with detailed information,” he concluded his statement.
