A mother of two has been killed following a hijacking in Gauteng

A 33-year-old mother was gunned down by hijackers outside the premises of her child's school in Bram Fischer phase 4 on Monday afternoon.

On Tuesday, Gauteng police reported that the mother was with her 7-year-old son and was picking up her 12-year-old daughter from the school in Soweto when the incident occurred.

"The mother was shot and thrown out of the car with her kids," she continued.

The mother died on the scene while her children were unharmed.
