Durban on Fire 🔥 as Security Guard Killed, Driver Severely Injured to Firearms Hijackers

A shooting at uMlazi, south of Durban, killed one security officer and critically injured another. According to Emer-G-Med spokeswoman Kyle van Reenen, paramedics found the two males in a Datsun Go.

“The driver was found in severe condition and a Netcare911 aeromedical helicopter was requested to take him to a specialised center for decisive care,” Van Reenen added.

“The passenger had severe injuries and was confirmed dead by paramedics.” Van Reenen said the SAPS were investigating. Mbele said uMlazi SAPS were investigating murder, attempted murder and robbery.

In uMlazi B Section, two security guards were escorting a courier van when they were ambushed by two armed guys driving another car. They shot both security guards, one of whom died at the scene. “The other was shot in the head and transported to hospital,” Mbele added. “The victims also lost their guns.”

Last Tuesday morning, KwaZulu-Natal police initiated a manhunt for individuals engaged in a cash-in-transit theft in uMlazi.

Security guards were servicing an ATM at W Section in uMlazi when they were reportedly attacked by a group of armed thieves driving in two cars.

“The criminals reportedly began firing at the cash truck, injuring one security guard. “We took him to the hospital,” Netshiunda stated.

“The suspects robbed the guards of an undisclosed sum of money and two guns. They were later found abandoned at G Section in uMlazi.”

Netshiunda claimed cases of robbery and attempted murder were opened.
