Netcare 911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst said that medics rushed to the rooftop parking lot after receiving reports of gunfire.

“A man who had been sitting in a car, thought to be aged in his twenties, sustained a fatal gunshot wound in what we believe to be a robbery,” he said.

“The man was assessed and sadly declared dead on scene by an advanced life-support paramedic,” he added.

Herbst said that a woman, the man’s companion, was also shot.

“She was transported by another ambulance service to hospital in a stable condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to her right leg.”

He said that circumstances leading up to the shooting at this stage are unknown and will be investigated by the police.
