Johannesburg - Six people were arrested after a man was shot dead and a teenager was wounded in Maitland, Cape Town, on Tuesday, Western Cape police said.

Captain Frederick van Wyk said a 22-year-old man was killed and a 16-year-old was shot in the lower body by gunmen who fled in a white car.

A description of the getaway car was broadcast to all police vehicles and at around 3.45pm, the Maitland flying squad spotted it and arrested the six occupants.

A 7.65 pistol with one live round was recovered.

The suspects, aged between 22 and 63, would appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court soon, Van Wyk said. - Sapa
