Johannesburg - A would-be hijacker was shot and wounded on Tuesday by the driver of the car he tried to hijack near Wemmer Pan in Johannesburg, police said.
Four men attempted to hijack the car on Mooi Street, Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said.
“The victim was at the on-ramp of N17 when his vehicle was blocked by another car,” said Dlamini.
“As he tried to make a U-turn, the suspects shot at his vehicle. The motorist got out of his vehicle and returned fire, shooting one of them in the foot.”
Police arrested the wounded man and another man. The two would appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court soon on charges of attempted murder and possession of unlicensed firearms.
