Johannesburg – Police are searching for two men who allegedly shot a man with a shotgun during a hijacking incident outside a plastic ware store, West Rand Pack, in Krugersdorp on Wednesday.

The men, one of whom was apparently dressed in a security guard's uniform, fled the scene in the victim's brand new Volkwagen Golf 7 with no registration number.

According to police spokesperson Constable Lucky Matome, the victim was wounded on his hand and lower body.

"It is alleged that the victim arrived in the parking lot of his place of business, when two unknown males pounced on him. They pointed [a shotgun at him] and demanded his vehicle," Matome said in a statement.

It is believed that the man was shot after an argument started.

No arrests have been made so far.

The SAPS in Krugersdorp are requesting that anyone who has information which can lead to the arrest of suspects contact Detective Sergeant H. Mokhitli on 083 623 9638/011 951 1135 or alternatively call the Crime Stop line on 086 001 0111.
