    Well done, and if one of the kids had been caught in the crossfire?!?! I hope they at least caught the sod!

    It was a shoot out between police and a carjacking syndicate, that was targeting 4X4's and SUV's at the Bryanston Dual medium Primary School, cnr Sloan and Main. Thanks News24, I will accept my payment in cash for doing your job.

    It can only be a HOMICIDAL PERVERT lurking around to kidnap a kid or something @PIET I second that statement

    And why does it say Cape Town when it was Johannesburg? I keep threatening to leave News 24. The reporting sucks.

      Clementine - 2012-01-24 09:41

      I also want to understand that, is it coz the reporter is sitting in CPT??

      Julia - 2012-01-24 09:41

      Gaynor, Cape Town is where the journalist who wrote the story is based. Every article begins with the journalist's location... you'll see it in news stories on TV, on other sites and in newspapers too.

    Shooting was inside the parking lot of the school at 7.20am. Car's were racing in the parking lot, whilst police shooting at the suspect's car!! It was horrible!!!

      sounds like a completely wrong approach in a primary school. sounds like the police need to be trained at how to approach suspects under these types of circumstances. Next time there may be a horrible accident.

      Julia - 2012-01-24 09:43

      Insane!!! I assume the suspect shot first though.. hate to imagine that the cops could have been so irresponsible.

      davidnews24 - 2012-01-24 09:50

      @ Julia It makes me so angry to read about this kind of response. I sometimes wonder what kind of accident will be required to make these people think.

      Julia - 2012-01-24 10:32

      @ David Likewise... and what's with the thumbs down? Can't see anything in either your or my comment that could warrant them. Would be nice if people spoke up if they disagreed.

      @Karina, it sounds like you were there...? Shame man, no one should EVER have to go through something like that!! Hope you guys are all ok

  • Ursula - 2012-01-24 09:39

    This is a syndicate that is robbing parents when they drop kids off at school. Cops were undercover to catch them. All schools should be alerted so that security is now aware of this.

  • Thabile - 2012-01-24 09:52

    And then you say police are useless and incompetent.

      Thelma - 2012-01-24 10:14

      Ye in most cases!

  • almariv - 2012-01-24 11:11

    OMW, my daughter was in that school last year!! Rubbish!!
