Activist Patson Dzamara posted a different version of the shooting on his facebook page;

“So, I am told that the person who shot the man whose images I posted a few minutes ago parked a car with ZANU-PF stickers along Nelson Mandela. That led to a tiff between him and vendors. He ended up shooting the victim. His car is now in flames. Sad sights.”
