Johannesburg - Three men escaped during a shoot-out with the public, after robbing a jewellery store in Brakpan on Wednesday, Gauteng police said.

They robbed an American Swiss outlet at Carnival Mall of an undisclosed amount of money and jewellery, police spokesperson Joop Joubert said.

"They got into a shoot-out with the public before they fled the scene in a bakkie," he said.

It was still unknown whether anyone was injured.

    Crime is really a problem this days, and is getting out of hand. Criminals are ruling in the township.

    The wild west show again. Maybe we should get guys like Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid to roam our streets.

    This mall is weird. We were part of the construction team in phase 1 and 2 and every time there was a robbery. If it wasn't inside it was on the outside. They even held the guards at gunpoint over weekends and stole machinery and plant. This mall is a easy target because there are so many escape routes from this mall and it is easy to get on the highways and if you are on it trust me the cops will not easily find them. Two minutes get away time on a highway will take them far.

      I think everyone knows what he meant, it was really obvious.

    Did the police arrest the persons who shot at the robbers for attempted murder , that is the norm here .
