Attempted vehicle heist: Shootings at OR Tambo International Airport are increasing to a point where citizens need to be prepared for a shooting that might occur right now.

In Pretoria, street footage near OR Tambo airport has revealed a victim of yet another shooting. Prior to the shooting, the surveillance footage have also revealed six Indian businessmen being followed from the diamond centre.

According to EWN, the murder of the shuttle driver, which took place on the 15th of May, was the result of an attempted diamond heist – which of course failed, as the gunmen got away without any of the jewels thought to have been in the briefcases of the businessmen.

According to reports on the incident, the Fordsburg shuttle driver, Shakeel Mohammed, was shot, pulled out of the vehicle and left to die on the highway towards OR Tambo International.
