UPDATE: STATE SEEKING SCHEDULE 5 OFFENCE CATEGORY FOR SHAUN BLUNDEN

Port Elizabeth businessman, Shaun Blunden, 52, who owns Blunden Coach Tours, is expected to apply for bail in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate's Court on Wednesday morning.

Blunden was arrested over the weekend for allegedly shooting his sister's ex-husband. The shooting reportedly followed an altercation at his mother’s home on Saturday.

A domestic dispute between Blunden and his niece, Kaylin Williams, turned violent when her father, and Blunden's former brother-in-law, Deon Williams, 51, tried to intervene resulting in the latter being admitted to the ICU with a gunshot wound in the stomach.

He made a brief apperance at the Port Elizabeth Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The State is expected to oppose bail.

Blunden is currently being held in custody at the Humewood police holding cells.
