The group allegedly stormed the Twin City shopping complex where they targeted two ATMs and fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspects instructed security officers and shoppers to lie down while at the same time blocking the R555 and R37 leading into Ohringstad.

The suspects started shooting randomly, killing one security guard.

Police later discovered an abandoned vehicle, believed to have been used during the crime. There was blood inside the vehicle.

"The suspects are still unknown, there is no arrest," says police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe.
