The two were caught in the crossfire during the robbery on Sunday.

The police have launched a manhunt for three suspects who entered the shop on Sunday afternoon.

Police spokesperson Dimakatso Sello says the victims are both recovering in hospital.

“It is alleged that three suspects, two men and a woman, entered the store and demanded jewellery at gunpoint. One of the employees managed to press the panic button and the suspects made away with only the jewellery that was on display.

“On their way out they noticed a security officer and started shooting at him. One shopper was caught in the crossfire and sustained a gunshot wound,” says Sello.
