Three men have been killed following a shooting incident at the corner of Webber and Beacon road in Lambton in Germiston, east of Johannesburg.

It appears the incident happened after an attempted robbery. ER24 spokesperson, Ineke van Huyssteen, says paramedics found a man lying on the road and two other men inside a vehicle – all with fatal wounds.

Huyssteen says police are investigating.

“When Er24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 10:30, upon close inspection we found a man lying in the middle of the intersection as well as two men still inside a vehicle all with fatal injuries. Paramedics declared the men dead on the scene. Police were on the scene for further investigation.”
