Johannesburg - Two suspected looters have been shot and killed in Langlaagte, south of Johannesburg, police said on Monday.
The pair was allegedly part of a group that went to a Somalian-owned shop with an intention to loot it on Sunday night, said Lt-Gen Solomon Makgale.
A building next to the spaza shop, which is an engineering firm, was set alight, said Makgale.
“During the commotion, shots were fired and the two males were killed,” he said.
Police presume the shots were fired by the group.
