The man who was found dead in a vehicle abandoned on Monday morning just outside Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals in Harare was a suspected armed robber, reported The Herald.
The unidentified man found dead was believed to have been part of a gang of armed robbers.
The man’s body had wounds on the chest and stomach and was lying on the back seat of the vehicle which was parked along Mazowe Street.
The vehicle was reportedly stolen in Parktown, Waterfalls, on Wednesday last week.
According to The Herald, the owner parked his car on Wednesday at around 10 PM before retiring to bed after locking all the doors.
At around 5.30 AM the next day he found his vehicle was missing and reported the theft to the police.
Police suspected that the vehicle was being used as a getaway car in other crimes.
The vehicle had a single registration number plate (ADW 5062) attached on the front and no rear plate.
Police recovered several cellphones, housebreaking equipment, a crowbar, a golf stick, beer bottles and electrical cables, among other goods and clothes in the vehicle.
Police believe the suspected armed robber might have been seriously injured while committing crimes in the company of his accomplices.
It is believed his accomplices probably left the vehicle near the hospital hoping that it would be discovered in time to give the man medical treatment.
