#RANDBURGSHOOTING :: ATTEMPTED CASH-IN-TRANSIT IN RANDBURG, SUSPECT SHOT DEAD

Linden police have confirmed that an attempted cash-in-transit heist on Oak Avenue has resulted in a death of a suspect.

According to Constable Takalani Matumba, about twenty suspects are alleged to have been involved in the crime.

He said, of the twenty suspects, four who were armed with rifles and a pistol entered Randburg Coin, a diamond and coin dealer at Netwater Place.

It is alleged that the suspects opened fire inside the business complex while the rest waited outside the business premises.

Matumba said suspects outside the business premises proceeded to block the security vehicle and fired shots.

“Police officers and security personnel who were on the scene were unharmed. However, one suspect was shot and killed by the security and the rest got away.”

Further details have revealed that four vehicles were involved in the attempted cash-in-transit heist.

An eyewitness confirmed that a Toyota Fortuner, a white BMW, a white VW caddy and a white Ford Fiesta ST were all involved.

Another eyewitness, Shawn Gerhadus Greyling, who drove past the scene shortly after the incident confirmed that several roads had been closed to traffic.

“It looked as though the Ford Fiesta STI had clipped a grey Toyota Corolla. Both cars were left vacant on the scene. Oak Avenue, towards Republic Road, as well as George Street were closed off,” said Greyling.

According to ER24, the male suspect in his 30’s who sustained head injuries died on the scene.

PLEASE NOTE: Some of the roads remain closed. These include Oak Avenue, Grove Street, Cross Street up to Kent Avenue and Republic Road to Kent Avenue.

According to an eyewitness, Fidelity ADT were first on scene where a shootout ensued.

One suspect sustained serious injuries to the head and it remains unclear if the others were injured.
