It is alleged the suspects were involved in a hijacking earlier the day. SAPS and metro police pursued the vehicle at high speed on Main Reef Road. The suspects opened fire on the officers, but lost control of the vehicle on Winze Drive, crashing it into a wall.
One suspect had a bullet wound to his head, and the other three were seriously injured, but it hasn’t been confirmed whether the suspect with the bullet wound survived.
Four firearms were confiscated.
