Attempted Robbery Kloof Rd Bedfordview. Shots fired, minor injuries. Suspects driving a Blue Golf R. No further details

I was almost hijacked outside my house on Kloof today. They managed to get in, shots were fired but everyone is okay.
However, there was a fairly bright side to the incident. There were construction workers building houses next to us at the time and when they saw an armed man getting out the Golf R they proceeded to throw half-bricks and huge rocks at the car, screaming 'get out of here Totsi's!' Etc. They continued to throw these rocks WHILE THE GUY SHOT AT THEM, until the car fled with a broken windshield, mirror caps etc.
I would just like to thank the 28 workers who launched that endless volley of debris at the hikackers so that I had enough time to speed into my garage and close it.
