Johannesburg – Gauteng police are reportedly still hunting for three men who allegedly shot a man outside a primary school on Thursday afternoon.

The 53-year-old man was critically injured after being shot three times outside De La Salle Holy Cross College junior school when he arrived to fetch his child.

Gauteng police said on Thursday the man was apparently followed from a bank in Randburg, where he had withdrawn R40 000. A car with tinted windows parked behind him, and two men approached his car, trying to grab the bag containing the cash. He was shot in the ensuing scuffle.

The men fled the scene with the money.

Eyewitness News reported on Friday that police are searching for the three men, and are trying to trace the white Golf used in the robbery.

According to The Star, the shots were heard just before the end of the school day. Teachers moved swiftly to keep over 600 pupils calm and they assembled in the school hall.

The shooting victim's 7-year-old daughter was told by the school counsellor that her father had been injured. Her family later arrived at the school.

The injured man was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
