Johannesburg - A man, believed to be in his 40s, was shot dead on Bowling Avenue in Sandton on Tuesday, paramedics said.

ER24's Russel Meiring said they had found a car on the side of the road, with the man lying in the front seat.

Meiring said the man had been shot a number of times and showed no signs of life.

He was declared dead on the scene.

"It is alleged that an unknown number of gunmen had opened fire on the driver and vehicle, causing him to crash into the pavement," Meiring said.

Traffic was heavily affected in the area.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the Bentley driver was coming from the bank when he was gunned down by four men. 

"They shot him dead and fled the scene without taking the undisclosed amount of money," Dlamini said. 

Dlamini said no arrests had been made.
