A man had been on a motorcycle drive with his pup on Sunday when he spotted a white Mercedes-Benz following him.
He returned home and instructed his son to take the dog inside the house. The next harrowing moments were caught on video.
The white Mercedes-Benz stops in front of the man's Lonehill house and a suspected robber gets out.
The thug pulls out a gun and starts shooting at the motorcyclist. However, the man does not back down and little did the robber know, he was also armed.
Pulling out a gun, the man starts shooting at the thug, who decides to retreat to his getaway vehicle.
“When I saw the gun I knew it was a robbery, [I] drew mine and started firing,” Times LIVE reported he said.
The video has since gone viral and was shared on several social media accounts, including @crimeairnetwork on Twitter.
The post was captioned:
"They tried, he showed them. Lonehill, Johannesburg, GP."
South Africans have since reacted to the video and they applauded the motorcyclist for fighting back.
While the motorist got lucky, other people were held hostage by criminals in Mzansi. Briefly.co.za previously reported on a video of thugs taking over a Chicken Licken store.
