At about 4am yesterday morning the Drift Reaction received a call for assistance at a cottage in Riverside Road, Driefontein, Muldersdrift. According to the caller the tenants were attacked and the husband shot during the incident.
The control center immediately dispatched ER24 and dispatched the Iron Fist Squad as well as Tactical units to the scene.
On arrival they found the injured husband and his distraught wife.
They reported that the suspects had broken open the front door while they were sleeping and fired several shots of which one struck her husband in the stomach.
Again they made off with a lot of expensive household items. The gang gained entry onto the premises by cutting the electric fence.
The Iron Fist Squad went into hunting mode and tracked the footprints which showed that four to five suspects were present.
The couple only moved into the cottage last week and have not had time to link up with any security company.
The husband underwent emergency surgery and is in a stable condition.
