At around 18H:00 on Wednesday evening there was a shooting in Vaal Mall at entrance 5 in Vanderbijlpark. A 40-year-old man had allegedly died on the scene. The incident occurred between an ordinary personnel and a SBV security guard.

While the motive behind the shooting is currently unclear. The eye witness told the Reporter that it is alleged that the security guard thought the man wanted to rob him. When the Reporter contacted Vaal Mall for comment they were too “busy” to give a comment.

The Reporter spoke to the employees but this is what they said “We have no comment for now, can you please contact the Marketing Manager. We as the employees do not have any comment.”

The investigation is still underway to determine what led to the shooting that occurred.
