Police to interview V.C Guards

Following the attempted hold up and subsequent shootout between robbery suspects and the guards attached to the Vision City Mall, police are now looking into the fire-arm license of the company.

The NCD Superintendent Operations, Michael Tilae, says that three of the guards that exchanged fire with the suspects will be brought in for questioning.

He says that most likely they may be charged for Unlawful discharge of fire-arms, depending on what investigations uncover.

Tilae said that the guards had injured several people in their exchange of fire with the suspects, hence police will need to establish the next course of action.

The Supt Ops also hinted that the security firm which is subcontracted to Vision City Mall may also be under scrutiny in terms of their fire-arm license and the training given to their personnel who are handling weapons.

Meantime, investigations are still continuing into Saturday’s robbery, which left the busy mega mall in a state of chaos and lock-down mode over the weekend.
