Johannesburg - A 26-year-old man has been arrested for attempted murder in Motherwell near Port Elizabeth after he allegedly shot another man in his private parts, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

Warrant Officer Dumile Gwavu said the man used his brother's gun to shoot the man on Friday.

"It is not known at the moment what the purpose of the shooting was and the police are still investigating," he said.

He was expected to appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate's court on Monday, facing a charge of illegal possession of firearm and attempted murder.
