Multiple award-winning artist Khuli Chana is recovering in hospital after allegedly being shot by police in a case of mistaken identity, Reports eNCA.

The incident occurred in Midrand in the early hours of this morning. Chana’s manager Refiloe Ramogase confirmed that the artist had been shot. According to Ramogase, police identified Chana’s car as matching the description of a vehicle belonging to a kidnapping suspect.

Ramogase told eNews Sunrise that police in unmarked vehicles opened fire on Chana’s car. He said that Chana was lucky not to be more seriously injured. Chana sustained a bullet wound to his hand, and there is shrapnel lodged in his back. Chana was the only person in the car at the time. Ramogase told eNCA that Chana's vehicle was driving "at 40 kilometres an hour" and that police had "ample time" to stop the vehicle.

He said that they would be pressing charges of attempted murder later on Monday.
