Volkswagen Cross Polo equipped with makeshift guns used in assassination attempt [video]

A close call

Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir has miraculously survived a bizarre assassination attempt in Johannesburg, South Africa.

As Krejcir was walking into his office, he heard a serious of explosions which he assumed were fireworks. In reality, they were a series of gun shots which were being fired from the rear end of a Volkswagen Cross Polo that was parked perpendicular to him.

Thankfully Krejcir was uninjured as his armored Mercedes took the brunt of the attack. Authorities are still investigating but it appears the Cross Polo was able to get off about 10 shots before it caught on fire.

Krejcir says he doesn't know who would want to kill him but the AP is reporting he is a fugitive who was convicted of tax fraud and has connections to "underworld figures" in Johannesburg.

Of course! How would he share who want to kill him? For such an elaborated assassination attempt, he must know.
