A man was shot and two hurt while trying to flee an alleged standoff at a church in Randfontein on Gauteng’s West Rand.

Paramedics confirmed that a person was shot in the shoulder.

All three have been hospitalised.

A specialised police task team is on the scene.

It is believed that the church is going through a power struggle due to money.
