“Two other suspects were hiding behind the cash-in-transit vehicle and they started shooting,” said Ramaube.

“As shots were fired, a 60-year-old male civilian was shot in his upper body and one of the security guards was shot in the right elbow.”

The suspects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

No arrests have been made.
