A man was assaulted, and a 54-year-old woman left in a critical condition after being shot in the chest in an apparent robbery in the early hours of this morning.

An off-duty ER24 paramedic living in the area was first on the scene just after 1 am after being alerted to the situation by the local neighbourhood watch. Treatment was started immediately and continued by Advanced Life Support once they arrived. The husband had suffered lacerations to the head. Both were transported to a private hospital in Fourways, Johannesburg by ER24 and another service.

South African Police Services were on the scene for further investigation.
