Johannesburg - A 42-year-old man was arrested for allegedly shooting two nurses inside the Vyeboom clinic in Makhado, Limpopo police said on Saturday.

He was arrested with his girlfriend, 27, and her 30-year-old brother in Giyani on Friday night, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

"After the shooting incident all police officers in Limpopo police stations were informed and then later that day the vehicle was spotted in a village called Basani (in Giyani). The tree suspects were cornered."

Police found and unlicensed firearm and confiscated several handbags and four cellphones which were stolen during the armed robbery at the clinic.

Mulaudzi explained the 27-year-old woman and her brother were not arrested in connection with the shooting, but for being in possession of stolen goods.

On Friday morning a man arrived at the clinic wearing a balaclava. He fired two shots at the floor forcing the clinic security guards to flee.

The man then took off his balaclava and went inside the clinic.

He went into one of the consultation rooms and shot one of the nurses twice in the stomach.

The man then went to another consultation room and shot a nurse in the arm.

He then helped himself to a set of car-keys and four cellphones and fled in a nurse's VW Polo.

Mulaudzi said the nurses were in stable condition in hospital.

The three would appear in the Giyani Magistrate's Court on Monday for possession of unlicensed firearm, stolen goods, and a vehicle.

"Since well they were all found in the possession of these stolen goods they will all appear in Giyani because police in Giyani also opened a docket of possession of stolen goods and a firearm."

He said the 42-year-old man would then appear in the Vuwani Magistrate's Court for armed robbery and attempted murder on Tuesday.

He was also linked to a car hijacking in Polokwane on Wednesday.

"He will also appear in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court next week Wednesday for that hijacking," Mulaudzi said.
