Johannesburg - A man died in shoot-out with the police after a high speed chase in Kensington, Johannesburg on Thursday, police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said Cleveland police were approached by a man who said he had seen his Honda Jazz, which was hijacked on Wednesday.

Police chased the car and a shoot-out ensued with its four occupants.

"One suspect was fatally shot in the process and [the] three others were arrested while fleeing on foot after the vehicle had stopped," Dlamini said.

They would appear soon in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on charges of attempted murder and possession of a suspected stolen vehicle.

    The Shootout was in Bez Valley and not in Kensington! The report fails to mention that the 3 suspects tried to but failed the hi-jack another vehicle, but shot the driver in the head!\r\nFortunately the drive sustained only a head wound! They fail to mention that the suspects then chased some school kids, traumatising them! They fail to mention that the suspects were caught at a well known lodge in Bez Valley, after they managed to board a Taxi! People, this is a problem with SA news agencies, the story never get told properly!
