Police are looking for four suspects after a 70-year-old man was shot and killed during a robbery at the China Town shopping complex in Ottery over the weekend.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Wynita Kleinsmith says the incident occurred on Sunday at about 15:00.

“A business robbery occurred at China Town on Sunday. According to the information four unidentified suspects robbed a shop and fatally shot the owner of the shop – a 70-year-old Chinese man,” says Kleinsmith.

The four suspects fled the scene on foot, and no arrests have been made yet.

Kleinsmith adds that a case of murder and business robbery is being investigated as well as a case of hijacking.

“It is believed that the same suspects hijacked a white bakkie in Ottery Road, Ottery just after the robbery incident,” she adds.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police on 021 700 3940 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
