Constable Godin Nyathi said the incident occurred at the Boxer Supermarket at 7am.

"Two security guards were collecting cash at the supermarket when they were approached by four men.

"They accosted the guards and grabbed the money from them... As they were leaving, they shot at the guards but wounded a passer-by in the hand.

The men then made off with the cash and were still at large.

The heist is the latest in a string of armed robberies at Gauteng shopping centres.

There are fears the number of robberies will increase as the festive shopping season gathers momentum.
