Shooting Sandton: Man now in critical condition after attempted hijacking

A man was left in critical condition following a shooting during an alleged attempted abduction Tuesday afternoon in Sandton, Johannesburg.

Emer-G-Med spokesman Kyle Van Reenen said that Paramedics had arrived at the scene where they found the victim in critical condition.

“Emer-G-Med paramedics arrived at the crime scene at the intersection of Grovesnor Crescent and William Nicol Drive and found a male patient in his vehicle, which had sustained multiple gunshot wounds from an unconfirmed weapon caliber, “said Van Reenen.

” Advanced life support measures were required to stabilize him before he was taken to a nearby hospital for further permanent care he was needed, “said Van Reenen.

Van Reenen said the details of the shooting at the time were speculative and would be the subject of an investigation by South African police en.

In an incident separate from the shootings reported Tuesday night, G-Med medics were at the scene of a horror crash after a minibus taxi knocked over in the Durban area and killed a cyclist “Emer-G-Med medics are in a fatal collision with a minibus taxi and a cyclist on the N2 southbound near the EB Cloete Cross,” said Van Reenen.

“A cyclist in her thirties was pronounced dead on arrival,” he said.
