The officer is now in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
He was in the client centre at the time of the shooting late last night.
The police's Lungelo Dlamini says officers were unable to detect the men were armed when they walked into the centre.
"Police also returned fire and the suspects fled the scene on foot. At the later stage we discovered that the warrant officer was wounded in the upper body. We don't know what the motive for the attack was."
