The incident occurred on Atlas Road, near the N12 on Thursday morning, Brigadier Vish Naidoo told News24.
“The details are very sketchy, but definitely no money was taken. A group of armed men attacked a security vehicle and there were shots fired between them and the security.
“One suspect was shot dead and a security guard was wounded in the hand. There is also a report of two civilians that had been injured, but it is not confirmed as yet,” Naidoo said.
