Two security guards were reported shot and one suspect killed on Thursday morning during a cash-in-transit heist near Atlas Road and North Rand Road, Boksburg.
It is believed that the suspects were unsuccessful in robbing the vehicle.
Motorists are urged to take care and to use alternative routes in order to avoid roads impacted by the heist, including some access roads linking to the N12 in Boksburg.
All the support services are arriving on scene, which is outside the Renault dealership on Atlas Road. Atlas Rd route to N12 likely to be blocked off again to clear the scene #cashintransit #CITRobbery
