Watch: Hijackers shot trying to steal Toyota Fortuner

A group of hijackers about to flee with a Toyota Fortuner were caught off guard on Saturday afternoon when bikers opened fire, causing the vehicle to crash in Warner Beach, south of Durban.

The suspects are seen on video holding up the occupants of an SUV. The driver is dragged from the car and searched for valuables, while two passengers are forced out at gunpoint.

Shots are fired from a nearby property, which is thought to be a bar, as the hijackers attempt to drive the car out of the driveway. Although the gunmen are not shown in the video, it is assumed they were bikers.
