Johannesburg – A man in his 40s was shot dead during a robbery at a building on Jorrisen Street in Braamfontein on Monday, authorities said.

"The man was on his way to the bank when two people confronted him. They allegedly pointed a firearm at him and shot him," said Captain Kay Makhubela.

He said they then robbed him of an undisclosed amount of money.

"The suspects fled the scene in a blue vehicle. No one has been arrested yet," he said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Nick Dollman said they responded to the shooting at approximately 15:35.

"Reports from the scene indicate that a male, believed to be approximately forty years old, had been shot several times. Tragically, the victim sustained severe injuries and died at the scene," said Dollman.
