    They allegedly fled in a black Nissan Navara (CCD registration) with an undisclosed amount of cellphones.

    ’’A case of business robbery has been opened for investigation after six suspects perpetrated a business robbery at a shop in a mall in Brackenfell,’’ Western Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said in a statement on Thursday.

    ’’According to information, the suspects armed with hammer and firearm entered the shop and threatened the employees and broke display glasses.

    ’’They fled the scene with undisclosed amount of cellular phones. The police are following up on leads in order to bring the perpetrators to book.’’

    An employee at the Cape Gate said on social media that their shift had ended about 15 minutes before the shooting, which led to them “hiding in the office”.
