JO­HAN­NES­BURG — Two peo­ple were shot and wounded yes­ter­day when a con­ve­nience store was robbed on Inanda Road in Dur­ban, KZN paramedics said.

The rob­bers shot a man who was wait­ing for a taxi and an el­derly woman in­side a petrol sta­tion shop, said Cri­sis Med­i­cal spokesper­son Neil Pow­ell.

The man was hit in the ab­domen and the woman in her up­per leg. They were taken to hospi­tal.

Po­lice spokesper­son Cap­tain Thu­lani Zwane said the rob­bers ar­rived at the petrol sta­tion, went into its con­ve­nience store and de­manded money. “… They took an undis­closed amount of money.”

The rob­bers also shot at a se­cu­rity ve­hi­cle, but no-one was hurt. Zwane was un­able to con­firm the shoot­ing.

He said the rob­bers aban­doned their car and hi­jacked an Opel Corsa in New­lands drive.

“Two R5 ri­fles were found in the car they left be­hind.” — Sapa.
