A security guard and a civilian have been shot and injured during a jewellery store robbery at Menlyn Park shopping centre in Pretoria.

In a graphic video shared on social media, a person can be seen lying on the ground in a pool of blood while security guards try to assist them. In another video taken outside the centre, the alleged perpetrators can be seen bypassing the spikes at a boom gate in one of the parking areas by placing a sort of ramp over them for two suspected getaway cars to pass over.
