gunNews24 reports that a security guard is in a critical condition after being shot by a gang of armed men at the Forest Hill City Mall in Centurion on Sunday morning.  

Police reported that three armed robbers attacked another guard and made him enter a cellphone shop around 09:50.  The guard, eight employees and two customers were forced into the manager's office, where the gang ordered the manager to open the safe.  Because that was taking so long, the robbers fled the scene on foot and, while running through the basement, they saw another security guard and shot at him before escaping.  ER24 paramedics found the guard in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest.  He was rushed to hospital in a critical but stable condition.  No-one else was injured.  No arrests have been made.
