Syndicate targeting Sandton primary schools
Johannesburg - A syndicate targeting primary schools in Sandton is believed to be behind a shoot-out between police and a man outside Bryanston Parallel Medium Primary on Tuesday.
The shoot-out erupted after a security guard alerted police to a man in a black Subaru.
No injuries were reported, said Captain Kym Cloete.
Police suspect the man may have been linked to a jamming device syndicate - who jam car alarm systems when vehicles are locked.
"On approaching the vehicle, the male occupant pulled out a firearm and fired. Police tried to block his vehicle with their car but he was able to evade it."
An exchange of gunfire ensued. While escaping in the Subaru, he hit another car, believed to belong to a parent. It was not known whether he was injured during the crossfire.
