A suspected armed robber was killed in a shoot-out with police in Strand in the Western Cape yesterday.

The man was robbing a woman in her car.

A taxi driver who witnessed the robbery alerted police, who found the suspect running next to the N2 highway.

“The man was shot in the head after several shots were fired. It is unclear whether the man shot himself or was killed by the police,” said Warrant Officer November Filander.

The incident will be investigated and an inquest docket has been opened.
