"Paramedics were shown to a security officer, believed to be in his thirties, who was in a critical condition, having sustained a gunshot wound to his upper body. Advanced life support paramedics worked to stabilise the man on the scene before he was rushed to a nearby hospital for the urgent care that he required.

"It is alleged that suspects robbed the guard of money. However, SAPS were on the scene and will be investigating further."
