Two officers noticed 3 armed men trying to force a man into the boot of a Toyota Corolla and confronted them.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police are searching for three suspects who opened fire on Metro police officers on the M1 North near the 11th Avenue offramp in Houghton.
Yesterday, two officers noticed the trio trying to force a Chinese man into the boot of his car and confronted them, prompting the suspects to open fire.
Officers returned fire and the suspects sped off in a silver-grey Nissan Navara.
Johannesburg Metro Police's Wayne Minnaar says the suspects made off with R40,000 that the Chinese man had just collected from his shop at the China Mall in Fordsburg.
Police are now trying to track them down.
