Stanger - Two police officers were shot and killed by three men in KwaDukuza, near Stanger, on Saturday, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Four officers stopped at the side of the R74 to investigate a suspicious red vehicle, when two of them, who were seated in the front of the vehicle, were shot in the head, Colonel Jay Naicker said.

The three men emerged from the bush and allegedly shot the constable and student constable, while they were still seated in the police vehicle.

One of the men got into the police vehicle and wrestled with the third officer for his firearm, said Naicker.

The other officer, seated at the back of the vehicle, then pulled his firearm and shot at the men who fled into the bushes, he said.

Naicker said no arrests have been made.
