An alleged robber was killed in a shoot-out with police on the N12 highway in Benoni, on the East Rand, on Tuesday morning, Gauteng police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale said two others were shot and wounded, and four others were arrested.

She said the flying squad was given information that a group of robbers would be driving through the area, and as they attempted to stop the vehicle, the alleged robbers opened fire.

"The police returned fire, fatally wounded one and wounding two. Four others were arrested."

ER24 earlier put the number of the wounded at three, saying they were found "lying around a light motor vehicle which had parked on the side of the road".

"Assessments showed that all three men had sustained numerous gunshot wounds and were in a critical condition," ER24 said.

The injured were transported to Tembisa Hospital.
