Durban – At least four people were shot and wounded in a cash-in-transit robbery at a mall in Phoenix, Durban, on Thursday morning, a security company said.

“Shoppers were caught in the crossfire between armed guards and the suspects. Two boxes containing an undisclosed amount of money, a bulletproof vest, and a firearm were stolen," Reaction Unit South Africa spokesperson Prem Balram said.

They fled the scene, at the Whitehouse shopping centre, in a Nissan X-Trail ‎and a VW Polo.

According to Rusa's Facebook page, heavily-armed suspects opened fire on a cash-in-transit vehicle.

The driver of a BMW X5 was hit in the thigh and suffered massive blood loss.

He managed to drive off, but stopped in Glen Anil, where passing motorists helped him. Paramedics stabilised him and took him to hospital.

KwaZulu-Natal police were not immediately able to comment.
