A 28-year-old man escaped unharmed after his car was shot at nine times during an attempted hijacking in Glenvista on Tuesday morning.

Gauteng police spokeswoman Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele said: “When he tried to get out of his yard in his car, four men pointed guns at him.”

A shoot out ensued between the hijackers and victim before the gunmen sped off in another vehicle.

Patrolling police later found a silver-grey BMW abandoned in an open space in Snake Park in which they found a body of a man with a bullet wound in his chest.

Makhubele said the vehicle was used as the getaway car in the attempted hijacking. Investigations revealed that it had been reported stolen in Lenasia.

Police were looking for three other men in a case of attempted murder and hijacking. - Sapa
