“On arrival on scene, it was established that a shoot-out had occurred between private security services and armed suspects. Two men alleged to be suspects, were found to have sustained fatal gunshot wounds and were declared dead on arrival of paramedics. There were no security members injured in the ordeal,” said Kyle van Reenen of Emer-G-Med.

Thursday night’s shooting comes just hours after police confirmed that a sixth suspect involved in a high-speed chase and shoot-out on the N2, near the King Shaka International Airport on Wednesday morning, died in hospital.

Provincial SAPS spokesperson, Brigadier Jay Naicker, said the man passed away in hospital due to injuries sustained.

“One suspect is still in hospital while the second is in police custody,” Naicker added.

In that incident, an armed gang is believed to have broken into a business in Empangeni on the KZN north coast.

Naicker said they held up the security guard and broke into a shop at the mall. The suspects stole clothing and various other items before fleeing the scene.

“A security company in the area was notified and immediately alerted all other role-players to indicate that the vehicles were travelling towards Durban. At the Tongaat toll plaza, other security companies and police officers joined in the chase. The suspects opened fire on their pursuers and there was an exchange of gunfire,” he said.
