"The university can confirm that a 30-year-old student has been shot in an attempted robbery outside the campus grounds at the Doornfontein campus," said UJ spokesperson Hermane Esterhuizen.

"The student is in a stable condition in hospital."

The incident took place at 20:30 on Tuesday. Esterhuizen said police were investigating. This follows and incident where a 23-year-old UJ student was hijacked and kidnapped by an armed man while parking her car in the parking lot of the Kingsway campus.
