Johannesburg - Two alleged robbers died in a shoot-out with police in Johannesburg early on Thursday, Gauteng police said.

Crime intelligence members received information that a robbery was to take place at a businessman's house in Ormonde, Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale said.

Police waited at the house and saw six men arriving at around 06:00. The men entered the house, robbed the businessman of an undisclosed amount of money, and fled.

"As they were fleeing, they were confronted by the national intervention unit and a shoot-out ensued," said Mogale.

Two of the robbers were killed.

The remaining four fled in a white car that police believed was hijacked. No one else was injured.
