Johannesburg - A matric pupil from the East Rand, who was en route to friends to study for the final exams, died shortly after being shot in the face by hijackers, Beeld newspaper reported on Friday.

Minke Aucamp, 18, who was a pupil at the Jurgens High School in Springs, was shot in the mouth as she was leaving her parents' driveway in her Hyundai Atos on Thursday.

A domestic worker, who gave her name only as Ally, told police that she had heard a scream and two gunshots at around noon.

She ran to the garage, where she found Minke lying on the ground and saw the Atos being driven away.

Police and paramedics arrived on the scene shortly afterwards, and Minke was airlifted to hospital in Alberton, but doctors declared her dead on arrival.

She was the only child of Carol and Willie Aucamp, who told reporters on Thursday that they had waited ten years to have her.

"She was so young... they could have just taken the car," a devastated Willie Aucamp told Beeld.

Police are searching for the hijacked car, with registration number ZPB435GP
