A man was killed, a woman seriously wounded, and two other men suffered minor injuries during an apparent shoot-out at Kagiso Mall in Krugersdorp, paramedics said on Friday.

"Paramedics were called to the scene of an alleged shoot-out that took place at a Kagiso Mall bank this morning [Friday]," said ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson in a statement.

"At around 10.30am paramedics were activated to the scene and upon their arrival they found that a man had succumbed to his injuries before their arrival, and was declared dead on [the] scene."

It was not known whether the man was a customer, possible robber, or bank employee.

A woman was transported to hospital by ambulance after she suffered serious wounds in the shooting.

Two other men suffered minor injuries and were also taken to hospital by ambulance.

Jackson said police were still on the scene and investigating the matter.
