JOHANNESBURG - Police have arrested two people in Soweto, after they robbed a Shoprite in Naledi, making off with R7,000.
Police say at least six suspects robbed the Shoprite this afternoon before there was a shooting inside the shop, followed by a high-speed chase.
No one has been reported injured but police are searching for four more suspects still on the run.
The police's Mpande Khosa says the suspects are believed to be part of a gang from the East Rand.
'They chased the suspects to the Merafe Hostel; two suspects were arrested, another four managed to escape. We have recovered one of the vehicles that was used there. We also recovered one 9mm pistol, with six rounds, and we recovered the R4 rifle with 48 live rounds."
Earlier today on the West Rand, two suspects were killed, and four others arrested during a botched robbery at the Clearwater mall.
