An armed robbery in a Dunkeld shopping centre ended in a shoot-out between security guards and three men on Tuesday, Johannesburg police said.

Captain Pinky Tsinyane said no injuries were reported.

A man entered the Dunkeld Fruit and Flowers shop in the Dunkeld West Centre, at the corner of Bompas and Jan Smuts Avenue, in the morning, pretending to be a customer. He hit the assistant manager with a firearm and took an undisclosed amount of money.

Security guards shot at the robber and his two accomplices as they fled. The robbers returned fire before escaping in a white Toyota bakkie.

Police recovered a 9mm pistol at the scene.
