Johannesburg - A man was shot dead and another wounded in an apparent road rage confrontation in Randburg on Friday morning, Johannesburg metro police said.

"The motorcyclist was killed on Malibongwe Drive and Boundary [Road] just after 07:00," said spokesperson Edna Mamonyane.

Apparently he confronted the driver of a sedan who shot at him.

"He died on the scene."

The wounded 44-year-old driver of the car was treated on the scene by paramedics before being transported to hospital under police guard, said Mamonyane.

She could not immediately confirm reports that the man was shot by the motorcyclist.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Santi Steinmann said the man was in a serious condition.
