Johannesburg - Two security guards were shot, with one robbed, on Tuesday afternoon at a complex in Lonehill, north of Johannesburg, Gauteng police said.

"It is believed that the security guard patrolling the complex noticed a suspicious vehicle entering the complex and he alerted his control room," police spokesperson Karen Jacobs said.

"Three suspects confronted him and he was shot in the arm. The security reaction officer also arrived and was shot in the neck. The suspects robbed the reaction officer [of] his firearm and fled the scene in a Mercedes Benz."

Both security guards were taken to hospital where they were receiving treatment, Jacobs said.
