One dead in Sunninghill shooting


One person was killed and another hurt in a shooting in Sunninghill, northern Johannesburg on Wednesday morning. 

It is believed that four men attempted to hold up employees at Builders Warehouse.

They demanded money but when nothing was made a available, they tried to hijack a customer’s van from the parking lot.

It is alleged that the driver resisted, shots were fired and the men fled on foot.

Police officers are on the scene talking to witnesses and trying to piece together the details of the incident.

A witness who saw the drama unfold said,  “I heard a pop sound on my left which is where the Builders Warehouse is.”

“I saw people standing on the corner Rivonia and Witkoppen looking in that direction and pointing in that direction.”

“I saw a white guy, I think he was wearing shorts and light blue-ish top.”

“He was running away from the whole commotion and then he fell down.”

“Shortly after that I saw another two guys, one with a gun, running towards a white bakkie. I could not make out the details.”

Police are searching the surrounding area for the assailants.
