A woman believed to be involved in a robbery at a jewellery store in a strip mall in Benoni was shot and killed on Sunday.
According to ER24 spokesperson Ross Campbell, paramedics arrived on the scene at 11:15on Sunday.
“Paramedics arrived on the scene at 11:15 along with relevant law enforcement to find the alleged suspect in the doorway of the shop having suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach area,” he said.
Campbell said the woman, believed to be in her late 20s, showed no signs of life and was declared dead on arrival.
“The owner of the store suffered moderate injuries. It was initially thought that the owner, who is a woman in her 30s, was shot. She had, however, only suffered cuts to her hands from broken glass. She was treated and transported to a private hospital for further treatment,” he said.
According to Campbell, the South African Police Services were on the scene for further investigations.
Meanwhile, two security officers were shot multiple times and injured when a cash-in-transit vehicle was bombed in a heist in Kempton Park on Saturday.

“Two security officers were found to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds and were treated and stabilized by advanced life support paramedics before being taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for further care,” Van Reenen said.
Last month researchers warned lockdown alert level 1 would witness an increase in cash-in-transit (CIT) heist robberies.
