Police followed up on information about an armed robbery situation taking place in Haaroff Street in Pretoria Moot.

It is believed that the suspects were caught following a forty-three-year-old woman from the OR Tambo International Airport to her home and when she drove into her driveway the suspects confronted her.

Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said they spotted the vehicle they were looking for, a blue BMW in a driveway of a house where the actually robbery was taking place and police try to arrest these suspects and shootout ensued which resulted in the two suspects being shot dead and the third one being wounded.

“We did recover two firearms at the scene which they include the point .38 special revolver as well as a 9mm pistol. These firearms will be sent for ballistic testing to determine if they were used for other crimes and we also do a profile of these alleged robbers to see if they were involved in other robbery cases.” Naidoo added.
