Robbery attempt at Soweto Shoprite leaves two suspects wounded

The Namibian Police have shot and wounded two men and arrested three others after they opened fire in an attempted robbery at the Shoprite U-Save in Windhoek's Soweto township.
Namibian Police Khomas Regional Commander, Commissioner Silvanus Nghishidimbwa, has told NBC News that the two suspects were part of a group of seven armed robbers, who pounced on the shop and gained entry at gun point at 07:00.
Eyewitnesses say the robbers, armed with firearms, forcefully gained access to the shop while most of the workers were reporting for duty.
City police Chief Abraham Kanime has urged business owners not to keep a lot of money on the premises, to prevent robberies.
Kanime warned would-be robbers, to prepare to be shot at if they open fire at the police.
Two suspects remain at large, and police investigations continue.
