Robber wounded in shoot-out


An armed robber was wounded during a shoot-out with police at a park in Houghton, Joburg, metro police said on Monday.

Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said the man was part of a gang of five who robbed a man and three women at The Wilds on Saturday afternoon.

Metro officers on duty at the park were running to assist the people when the man opened fire on them, he said.

The officers returned fire and the man was shot in the shoulder. The other four men ran away.

The wounded man was being treated at the Charlotte Maxeke hospital in Hillbrow. He would appear in court as soon as he recovered, Minnaar said. – Sapa
