Johannesburg - A man was arrested and another wounded during a shoot-out with police in Mofolo, Soweto, on Friday, Gauteng police said.
Members of the flying squad spotted a Toyota RunX in Mofolo and the driver sped off when the police approached, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.
During the ensuing chase the Toyota's occupants shot at the police.
“The police returned fire. The car hit a gate and police arrested a 42-year-old man. The other man had a bullet wound and was taken to hospital.”
The car was reported hijacked in Johannesburg on Friday afternoon. The men would be charged with hijacking the car, attempted murder for shooting at police, and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
The arrested man was expected to appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday. His accomplice would be in court once he was discharged from hospital.
