A man was injured in a shooting between authorities and suspects on Wednesday afternoon following a robbery at a bank in Centurion.
ER24 spokeswoman Russel Meiring said paramedics arrived at the scene about 2:40 p.m. Several authorities were already on the scene. “A man was lying next to a car and another emergency service was already treating him.”
The man sustained a gunshot wound to his pelvic bone. He is in serious condition. “The man was taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment,” Meiring added.
Local authorities are investigating further.
Yusuf Abramjee, the anti-crime activist, said on Twitter that two suspects had been arrested and confirmed the incident had taken place at the Standard Bank.
