An attempted mugging resulted in a shooting at Cornubia Mall in Umhlanga, north of Durban, on Wednesday. A security guard opened fire on the villain and wounded him near the Gagasi FM studios.
It is reported that the armed suspect came up to the victim pointing a firearm at him and tried to rob him. Luckily, the security guard was quick to respond: he pulled out his own gun and fired only one shot at the assailant.
Nevertheless, the suspected robber managed to flee the scene on foot. The police officials averred that there were no injuries and the suspect was still at large.
There have been no other statements released by the police or Cornubia Mall management as they are still investigating the matter.
