Chrysler’s South Africa CEO shot during robbery

JOHANNESBURG – Chrysler Group LLC says its CEO in South Africa was shot in the abdomen during a robbery in the country and is responding to medical treatment.

Chrysler spokesman Richard Sloman said Wednesday that CEO Trent Barcroft was shot Saturday during a robbery outside of Johannesburg. Sloman said that Barcroft, a United States citizen, was still in intensive care at a hospital Wednesday but was responding well to treatment.

A spokesman at the U.S. Embassy in South Africa said it was aware of the shooting, but had no comment.

Violent crime remains a widespread worry in South Africa. A U.S. Embassy employee was stabbed to death in January.

Chrysler, based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, is majority owned by Italy’s Fiat SpA. It is the No. 3 car manufacturer in the U.S.
