People of South Africa are in shock as series of crimes are gradually taking over our dear streets. Ranging from rape, hijacking, cash in transit heists, attacks on farmer, assault on women, just to name but a few.

Road users close to the OR Tambo International Airport were left in shock after a shooting incident left a man dead in the middle of the road leading to the drop-off area.

The man is lying breathless in the road leading to the departures and arrivals drop-off zone.

An eyewitness said gunmen came out of nowhere with AK47s and started shooting randomly.

Reports have it that it is an attempted hijack.

Travellers are very scared to near the airport after the shootout and they are likely to miss their flights.

Police spokesperson Major-General Sally de Beer said:

“I can at this stage confirm that a crime scene is presently being processed at OR Tambo International Airport’s premises. The SAPS will release a statement once facts have been verified.”

The question on almost everyone’s lips is where do get assault rifles and shoot people like dogs?
