Johannesburg - A customer was shot and killed during an armed robbery at Kazi Supermarket in Mayfair, Johannesburg on Wednesday night.
According to Brixton police station communications officer Jeanette Bickhoss, allegations are that two armed men entered the supermarket around 7pm and instructed customers to lay down, while searching them.
Bickhoss said the shop owner raised his hands above the head and pleaded to the suspects to take all the money in the cash register.
She added that a 25-year-old man believed to be a Malawian national refused to hand over his valuables and was shot by one of the suspects. He was declared dead on the scene.
“The suspects fled the scene with about R1000 that was taken from the cash register and an unknown amount of cash and valuables from customers,” Bickhoss said.
