The Spar (grocery shop) about 500m away from my home, was robbed last night. http://rekordeast.co.za/45376/well-known-store-robbed-at-gunpoint/
4 Armed men went in and shot 8 bullets when they left, miraculously no-one was shot.
My husband normally goes there on a Sunday to get bread, milk and a few odds and ends for the week. Yesterday he asked if I needed anything and I said no, he asked if I was sure and I said yes Im sure ... and a little while later we heard there had been an armed robbery. He would have still been in the shop if he had gone.
