Johannesburg - A man was killed in a shooting in Zola, Soweto, police said on Monday.

The incident occurred on Sunday night, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

“Police had been told that three men in a car had pointed a gun at a Community Police Forum member and taken his cellphone and money,” said Makhubela.

“The police spotted the car and when they tried to stop it, the suspects shot at them.”

Police returned fire and one of the men in the vehicle was killed.

The other two were arrested and the stolen items were recovered.

The pair would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court soon where they would face charges of armed robbery and attempted murder.
