A man travelling with his daughter was wounded when gunmen ambushed them while driving in Sandton on Monday morning.

The two, who were in a white Mercedes-Benz, were at the corner of Cambridge and Witkoppen roads at about 07:00 when they were shot at.

Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Dimakatso Sello said a case of attempted murder has been opened.

She said:

It is alleged the victim was driving with his daughter when two unknown men driving a silver bakkie opened fire at the victim and fled the scene.

The man was taken to hospital and the daughter was understood to be unharmed.

Pictures taken at the scene after the incident show the wounded man lying on the ground next to the car, with people seemingly assisting him. The window on the driver's side of the vehicle was shattered by several bullets, with some landing on the dashboard and seat.
