A man shot dead a would-be hijacker outside his parent's home in Lyttelton,
Pretoria police said on Thursday.

Captain Prince Mokhabela said four men tried to hijack the man and his wife
in their car at 7.40pm.

"The couple had gone to fetch a puppy from his parent's house. When they
were about to leave a silver VW Jetta parked behind them," he said.

Four men - two armed - approached the woman and demanded the car keys, said

"She told them she did not have them and gave him her cellphone. The
husband, who was in the yard, pulled out his gun from a moonbag and shot the
armed robber...," he said.

The other three men fled in the Jetta.

"The injured robber tried to run away, but he collapsed and died on the
scene," he said. - Sapa
