Neighbour kills 'hijacker'

A suspected hijacker was shot dead by a Booysens, Johannesburg, resident on Wednesday afternoon, Gauteng police said. A woman was robbed outside her home after withdrawing a large amount of money from a bank in the Glen shopping centre, Captain Katlego Mogale said in a statement. The woman and her passenger were followed home by five men in a white Toyota Camry. When she arrived at her driveway, the men got out of the Camry and ordered them out of their silver Mercedes Benz at gunpoint. When one of the men jumped into her car, she screamed for help. A neighbour responded and shot the alleged hijacker, killing him. The other four men fled in the Camry with an undisclosed amount of cash. An unlicensed firearm was recovered from the scene.Sapa
