The robber was shot dead in a car park of a shopping centre after trying to take a man’s bag
A bag thief paid with his life after he was shot dead by his victim as he tried to escape in a getaway car.
CCTV footage shows the robber with his loot running towards the open back door of a car.
A man armed with a gun is running after him determined to get his property back.
Just as the bag snatcher got into the car, he is shot and the man fell out on to the pavement as the car sped away.
The incident took place in the car park of the Cycad Shopping Centre in Polokwane in the north-eastern South Africa which borders
Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
In the video, a silver car is seen reversing from a car park spot as a man in orange trousers runs towards it, seemingly clutching a bag under his left arm.
In hot pursuit is the bag’s owner, a tall man wearing a blue shirt who appears to pull out a weapon and shoot the man at close range as he tries to get in the backseat of the alleged getaway car, reportedly carrying four associates.
The suspect falls to the ground and the silver Toyota Corolla speeds away from scene.
The alleged shooter than picks up his bag and calmly walks away, leaving the suspect lying on the ground.
The bag’s owner told police: “These people, all the time they steal from us.”
Police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe said that the alleged shooter, a 58-year-old local resident, noticed the suspect approaching his vehicle as he walked towards the shopping centre.
Ngoepe added: “He then saw the suspect running away with his bag towards the getaway car, which had four people inside, and he chased him on foot.
“He told the suspect to stop, but he continued running and then he fired some shots. The suspect died instantly.”
An investigation has been opened and police are currently searching for the four occupants of the alleged getaway vehicle.
