Bullets fly in failed Lambton armed robbery: http://bit.ly/2przmpl

The sound of gunshots ripped through the Lambton air as a shootout between Fidelity guards and five or six suspects took place late last Monday. According to Capt André de Jager, spokesperson for the Ekurhuleni West cluster, the suspects overpowered a guard carrying a money box with an undisclosed amount of cash from the Absa bank at Lambton Court Shopping Centre and grabbed the money box.

  • Juanita Horn, “We heard the shots all the way from Elsburg. That shopping centre really is a red zone.”
  • Candice McBride, “It was the scariest day of my life.”
  • Chantelle Taylor, “My fiancé waited in the car for me while I was inside Pick n Pay. When I came out, he asked me if I heard the shots.”
