Cape Town -

A security guard was shot dead and a police officer wounded during an armed robbery in Nyanga on Monday, Western Cape police said.

Captain Frederick van Wyk said four men robbed a liquor store at Philippi Plaza, on the corner of Stock and Govan Mbeki roads in Cape Town, around 9.40am.

The men shot dead the security guard and wounded a 32-year-old constable who arrived at the scene.

The officer was transported to hospital in a critical condition.

Van Wyk said the gang fled in a silver Chevrolet Aveo which they had hijacked.

“They are regarded as armed and dangerous and they are yet to be arrested.” - Sapa
