Johannesburg – Three men were shot dead on Tuesday morning while trying to rob a house in Bertrams, Johannesburg, police said.

Inspector Mosima Manganyi said the men, who had two firearms and a knife, entered the house at about 05:00.

One of them waited outside with a gun, while the other two went upstairs.

The owner of the house went out to his car and was approached by one of the men.

“He screamed and his son came out with a firearm and fired at the suspect and he collapsed,” said Manganyi.

On hearing the gunshot, another robber came downstairs and started shooting in the son’s direction. The son, whose age was not given, fired one shot in return and the robber was killed instantly.

The third robber, who was armed with a knife, tried to hide under a bed but the son found him.

“As he was trying to run for his life, he was shot twice in the head,” said Manganyi.

The men, aged between 25 and 30, died on the scene.

Police confiscated two 9mm pistols and a knife.
