Johannesburg - Two men have been taken in for questioning in connection with the killing of a Pretoria woman, according to a newspaper report on Wednesday.

Chanelle Henning, 26, was shot dead in Faerie Glen a week ago, shortly after dropping off her son at pre-primary school.

The New Age reported that the two alleged killers were taken in for questioning on Monday night.

The two, one of them a suspended police officer and the other a convicted criminal who has spent years in jail and owns a black Kawasaki ZX9, were questioned until the early hours of Tuesday.

The New Age reported that the two may have been paid by a prominent Nigerian drug dealer.

Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale could not confirm or deny to the newspaper if anybody had been taken in for questioning.

Henning was overtaken by two people on a motorcycle and was shot while driving on Manitoba Drive.

Faerie Glen Neighbourhood Watch chairperson Fanus Johnson said witnesses had described the motorcycle as a black and silver "big touring bike" with no rear number plate.

The two people on it were wearing black jackets and helmets with the visors down to obscure their faces.

Henning was buried on Monday at the Doxa Deo Church in Hartbeespoort.
