CAPE TOWN – One of two men shot near a factory in Maitland is in a critical condition.

Police say a shooting followed an armed robbery.

It’s believed three gunmen, travelling in a white Toyota Yaris, followed the 63-year-old victim from the bank and robbed him of a sum of money.

The police’s Frederick van Wyk, “The suspects also shot a 60-year-old security guard and got into a getaway vehicle. The victims were treated on the scene and taken to a nearby hospital for further medical treatment. We have opened a case of armed robbery, and two attempted murder cases for further investigation.”

ER24’s Russel Meiring says they found the one victim lying on the floor.

“On inspection, we found the patient lying on the floor surrounded by members of the public. We assessed the patient and found that he had sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was in a critical condition.”
