A security guard working in Johannesburg was shot down by three armed crooks over the weekend, in a brazen attack that took place in broad daylight. The robbery saw the gang disarm the officer, before running off with his gun. This all took place across from an Engen garage in the west of the city.

In the video, we see the guard tending to something on his windscreen. He is then approached by the nefarious trio, who end up using their strength in numbers to overpower their target. The victim is shot, and falls to the ground following a brief struggle. He’s left helplessly on the ground as his vehicle gets looted.

After committing this heinous crime, the gang can be seen running towards a getaway vehicle. They then disappear out of shot, leaving the security guard wounded in the car park. CCTV footage from the corner of High and Bartlett Roads (across from Garden City Hospital) caught the whole shocking altercation.

POLICE LOOKING INTO GARDEN CITY SHOOTING
Despite the implementation of lockdown rules across South Africa, criminals have still found ways to operate in the current crisis. It was revealed over the weekend that some hijackers have adapted the way they target vehicles, with thugs now stealing vehicles on driveways to counteract the new ‘work from home’ culture.

But this particular crime in Johannesburg will require a swift course of justice, and with the footage made available by the CCTV cameras, the police investigation has some significant leads to follow-up with.
