"The guard was airlifted to the hospital for medical attention," police spokesperson Colonel Brenda Muridili told News24.
The guard came face-to-face with the assailants, as he was loading money into a cash-in-transit vehicle stationed outside Birchgate Spar in Kempton Park, east of Johannesburg.
He was shot at close range.
"The suspects fled the scene," Muridili said.
No arrests have been made.
