One suspect has been wounded and another three have been arrested following a foiled robbery at a cellphone shop at the Carlswald Shopping Centre in Midrand.
Police say they responded to a tip-off on Thursday about a planned robbery at the shop and once they arrived, there was a shootout.
The police's Kay Makhubela says the suspects fled in two different vehicles, one of which was hijacked from a customer who was leaving.
“The police gave chase. There was continuous shooting. One suspect was shot at and is now in hospital, three others were arrested.”
Makhubela says police are still searching for four other robbers.
