Business Robbery Leads To A High-Speed Chase And Shootout

Yesterday evening our Special Operations Team responded to information received which lead to a high-speed chase and shootout and resulted in two fatalities.

At approximately 19h00 working on information received, our Special Ops Team working together with the SAPS Phoenix Trio Crimes Unit spotted a Toyota Corolla on the R102 which had been involved in a business robbery at a well-known shopping mall in the KwaDukuza area, earlier on in the evening.

Our Special Ops Team immediately responded and as soon as the suspects noticed our team members they opened fire and started driving at high-speed in order to get away. Our team members immediately returned fire and a high-speed chase ensued. 

After a short chase the suspect’s vehicle came to a halt on Station Road in the Canelands area of Verulam, where the suspects exited the vehicle and a shootout ensued between the suspects and our team members. Two suspects were fatally wounded and a search for the outstanding suspects was conducted but unfortunately, after an extensive search the suspects managed to evade arrest. Two illegal firearms were recovered on scene, one handgun and one high-caliber rifle. Exhibits that were taken in the business robbery were also recovered.

Fortunately, none of the team members were injured during the shootout.

The crime scene was cordoned off and will be investigated further by the SAPS.
