In a separate incident
A trail of bloodstains leads into Kyalami Corner shopping centre in Midrand‚ where hijackers exchanged fire with the police.
The shootout came after four men hijacked a police detective who was observing a hotspot in Bramley on Tuesday morning.
Two officers were travelling in an unmarked police vehicle‚ when criminals pounced on them.
One of the officers was outside the car‚ when he spotted his partner being forced to drive off by armed men.
The four men fled with the officer‚ assaulted him and‚ upon realising that they were being chased‚ dumped him in open veld near the R55.
It took this guy seven seconds to hijack the brand new Audi RS3. Criminals prey on opportunity and mostly on easy signs of vulnerability. pic.twitter.com/ToDvSaEcHF
