A 29-year-old woman working at a petrol station at Onyaanya in the Oshikoto Region was shot dead by robbers early yesterday morning.
Regional Police Commander Ndahangwapo Kashihakumwa says three men arrived at the filling station at around 01h00, carrying jerry cans and asking for petrol.
They apparently told the attendant that their car had run out of petrol.
After paying for their petrol, they followed the woman into the office where the safe was and demanded money from her.
The petrol attendant ran away but was shot in the back, the Police commander said.
The woman's name has not been released yet.
Another person who was sleeping at the petrol station while waiting for a lift was tied up by the robbers, according to the Police.
An unknown amount of money was stolen from the filling station.
No arrests had been made by yesterday afternoon.
