Johannesburg – A security guard was shot and wounded in a shopping centre in End Street, central Johannesburg, on Thursday evening, paramedics said.

The man had been shot in the stomach and was in a serious condition, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said.

Paramedics found him in the back of a shop, in a storeroom.

An unknown number of gunmen apparently entered the shop and the guard was shot while trying to stop them, Meiring said.

He was transported to a private hospital in Johannesburg.

Police were not immediately available for comment.
