Robber shot dead in Louis Trichardt

An alleged robber was fatally wounded on Friday May 29, 2015 after he and five accomplices tried to rob a jewelry store in Louis Trichardt in Limpopo.

Capt. Mampashwa Seabi, a police spokesman, told Maroela Media six armed men entered the shop at about 12:30 in the town’s business center and detained the owner with a firearm.

“Apparently, the owner had his own firearm near him and shot at the suspects. One of them was fatally wounded,” Seabi said.

The other suspects fled on foot and are still at large. The main street in the business center was closed while police investigated the scene.

Police are investigating a case of attempted armed robbery and murder.
