“As they approached the vehicle, two suspects started shooting at them, and they retaliated,” Sello said.

In videos shared on social media, two gunmen can be seen opening the door of the courier vehicle and forcing the driver to move from behind the driver’s seat.

A second video shows a SAPS official carrying a firearm, standing in front of the courier vehicle, and instructing the occupants to get out.

As the occupants and the courier van driver get out of the vehicle, one of the men produces a firearm and opens fire at the police officer. The officer is seen falling to the ground as he fires back.
