Hijackers Open Fire On Police, Private Security In South Afr

A private security vehicle crashed after suspected hijackers shot at the driver.

On Friday after suspected hijackers opened fire on police and private security, motorists were warned to avoid the vicinity near Durban's King Shaka International Airport, South Africa. 

Samantha Meyrick of IPSS Medical Rescue, who was on the scene, told TimesLIVE, a South African news media that police and private security were pursuing a light motor vehicle that had been hijacked near KwaDukuza.

"The suspects pulled off on the N2, near King Shaka International Airport. They abandoned the vehicle," said Meyrick.

"They opened fire on police and private security. The private security vehicle was shot multiple times. 

"The driver left the road as a result but sustained no injuries and continued the chase."

According to Meyrick, the hijackers fled into bushes near the airport.

"The police canine unit has been on the scene. They have not located the suspects yet. 

"It is an active scene but it is safe. It is highly unlikely they are going to find the suspects."

It was also reported that the South African Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
