Warning: Sporadic shooting and hijacking at on KROMBOOM road


The public is requested to avoid Kromboom road and Jan Smuts drive in Athlone following an Attempted Hijacking incident. Reports of shots fired. SAPS on scene.

Witness Report: “I was almost caught in a crossfire now. Saw a shooting real live. Still trembling a little. Waiting outside R school now.

Happened at robot of Kromboom and Jan Smuts Drive. I just saw police van and a car stopping and then they were shooting at the guys.

I think they got them. I turned around immediately and came down Lawson road. Otherwise I would have been stacked in that traffic – it was an attempted hijacking at the Woolies in Kromboom road.”
