Johannesburg - A man was shot and killed by security guards during a house robbery in Sandhurst, Johannesburg, on Thursday, police said.

He was among three armed men who confronted the gardener at a house on Empire Place, Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said.

A neighbour saw this, pressed a panic button and the local security guards arrived. The guards saw the men fleeing and fired several shots. One of the robbers was fatally wounded. Paramedics declared him dead on the scene. Two other men managed to run away.

The thieves only managed to steal the house keys. - Sapa
