Two people were shot early yesterday evening (21 June) when robbers opened fire on G4S security guards who were collecting money at Sunshine Cash & Carry on Van Wyk Street.

According to police spokesperson Warrant Officer Karen Jacobs the incident took place at about 5.20pm. The guard was exiting the Cash & Carry centre when the suspects started shooting wildly. They grabbed the money from the guard and fled in a golden brown Audi A4. Eyewitnesses said there were five suspects armed with handguns and automatic rifles but police are not sure whether a second vehicle was involved. A customer was wounded in the stomach and a taxi driver was hit in the elbow. Both victims were taken to hospital.

At about 7pm the Organised Crime Unit took over the scene.
