Shoppers were in shock after hearing gunshots being fired near Checkers Hyper in N1 City Mall on Sunday afternoon.

Screams echoed through the mall for shop keepers to lock their doors and stay inside.

This after five men robbed Engelbreght Jewellers. Using a hammer and metal object the men broke through the display glass and stole jewellery and watches. The owner, who was in the back of the store, heard the commotion, came out, armed with a firearm then shot and injured one of the suspects.

“The five men then fled. No one was arrested and no one else was injured on the scene. They fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money,” said Goodwood Police Department’s Inspector Theunis.

While police investigations continue, anyone with information can contact the Goodwood police department on (021) 597 1760.
