The suspects demanded money from the employees after which they fled with an undisclosed amount.
“During the incident, a man believed to be in his thirties from Elsies River, was fatally wounded in the head and his licensed pistol had been taken by the suspects. No one else sustained serious injuries during the incident”, says Steyn.
The robbers fled the scene on foot and are still at large.
