Two people have reportedly killed each other over cattle dispute in Tonj South County, Warrap State.
The police identified the men as Magar Makuach, 39; and John Ater, 37.
During a quarrel related to cattle, Magar shot John in the thigh. John returned fire, shooting dead Mangar in the chest and killing him instantly.
However, John later bled to death while he was being rushed to a health facility.
“They lived together, ate together in one cattle camp at Cueichok in Manyang Ngok Payam,” said 2nd Lt David Bol Managng, police Inspector in Tonj South.
He appealed to the relatives of the deceased to consider the incident as isolated and thus should not retaliate.
