Three more men, all believed to be between the ages of 20 and 50, did not sustain injuries.
Two of the men were travelling in the cash-in-transit van, and two more men were in a security vehicle when shots were fired at them.
It is believed the suspects involved in this incident fled the scene. Local authorities later arrived at the scene for further investigations.
