Durban - One of the robbers killed in a shootout with a cash-in-transit guard in KwaMashu has been identified as a South African mixed martial arts fighter.
Since the Bridge City Shopping Mall incident on Monday, police are still searching for the other suspects of a cash-in-transit gang.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Brenda Muridili said a group of robbers engaged in a shootout with security guards of a cash vehicle. She said two of the robbers were shot dead. She said the remaining robbers fled the scene in a minibus taxi.
"A hand gun and a rifle were recovered on the scene from the robbers. We do not know if any cash was taken," Muridili said.
It is alleged that a gang of seven men tried to hold up CIT guards transferring money to their vehicle.
