Armed robbers shot

Armed robber shot dead, 4 others arrested during a shootout with police. The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is still looking for more accomplices who are on the run.

An armed robber was shot dead while four of his accomplices were arrested during a shootout with the police at Lutumba Business Centre.

Reports suggest that the gang has been terrorising motorists along the Beitbridge Masvingo road and also unleashed a reign of terror for smugglers using gates 2, 5, 7 and 8, along the Limpopo River to illegally cross the border into South Africa and Zimbabwe.

It is further reported that on a fateful day, the police reacted to an armed robbery alert call near Lutumba Business Centre where the shootout broke.

Matabeleland South Police Spokesperson Assistant Inspector Thabani Mkwananzi confirmed the incident but could not give further details saying officers were “still busy on the ground conducting further investigations.”

The Chronicle reports that in a related incident, another armed robber was on Thursday disarmed and fatally assaulted by a group of smugglers along the Limpopo River.
