City Police last night shot and killed two of three burglars that broke into a house in Pionierspark Extension 1 in the city.
The third burglar escaped by jumping into a taxi. It was not immediately clear if the taxi was being used as a get-away car.
Police responded to an alarm that went off and quickly drove to the back of the targeted house. On arrival, they spotted the thieves carrying off items apparently stolen from the house.
Police said the thieves ignored warning shots and orders to stop. The police gave chase and shot down two of them. Items stolen from the house were recovered.
The thieves allegedly broke down a wall fence at the house.
