Johannesburg - Gauteng police have launched a manhunt after a security guard was shot and killed and another wounded in a robbery incident at a Shoprite store in Ekurhuleni.
The incident happened on the evening of July 20 at the supermarket's store in Ratanda mall, Heidelberg. Video footage showing the shocking incident has since surfaced online.
In the footage, a man is seen attempting to enter the store before being stopped by a guard who appears to first question him and then search him, leading to some resistance from the man.
A scuffle then ensues between the two, with the man seen taking out a firearm and trying to aim it at the guard.
The guard is then seen pushing the man to the ground before the man's accomplices rush to the scene and shoot the guard several times.
