Man shot, robbers off with cash in broad daylight

A businessman was shot and injured by four armed men outside a branch of the Standard Bank in Meyerton on Monday, Vaal police said.

Spokesperson Captain Shadow Mashobane said the man was standing in a queue outside the bank when he was allegedly attacked at 9am.

The robbers allegedly stole a briefcase with an undisclosed amount of money and fled in a red BMW, said Mashobane.

"The briefcase was later found abandoned on the outskirts of Meyerton, next to Sicelo informal settlement," he said.

The wounded man was rushed to a local clinic in a serious but stable condition.

Police are investigating a case of attempted murder and armed robbery.
