A man was arrested for attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday. The 29-year-old was arrested on Monday afternoon after Pinetown residents called police about a silver VW Polo with no registration plates, Captain Thulani Zwane said. The police spotted the vehicle in New Germany and a high-speed chase ensued. The man lost control of the carand it overturned. He got out and fired two shots at the officers.

"The police managed to capture the man. He was arrested and charged with attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm," said Zwane.

The unlicensed CZ 9mm pistol would be sent for ballistic tests to determine if it was used in other crimes.
