Community members beat to death an armed robber after he had tried to rob a local store in Pomeroy, KwaZulu Natal.

The 24-year old robber was overpowered by a store keeper when he held her up at gunpoint and demanded cash.

Independent Online reports that the robber fired two shots, missing the owner.

It seems that she managed to grab the shotgun and in the struggle that followed, she overpowered and disarmed him.

Members of the community, who heard the gun shots, rushed to the scene and dragged the man outside, where they kicked, punched and hit him with a sjambok.

Police intervened and Musa Mdletshe was rushed to Dundee Provincial Hospital where he later died.

Police spokesperson Captain Riana de Jager said a police officer in Pomeroy had commented that there was not a place in his body where he had not been hit.

Police are investigating a case of murder and attempted murder.
